Can wills keep undesirable family members out of inheritance?

As many Kent, Seattle residents know, planning for the distribution of one's estate in the event of death is truly important for oneself and for the loved ones who stand to inherit. An estate plan makes it easier on beneficiaries later if how one intends to distributed her assets is clear. By setting up a will or some form of estate plan, Kent residents can also ensure that their assets are distributed according to their wishes. This includes prohibiting certain individuals from inheriting one's assets if this is so desired. One expert recently addressed how one might ensure a child's spouse does not stand to inherit assets.

For dedicated pet owners, a living trust is a must

62 percent of American households have pets. From dogs and cats to alligators, America is a nation that enjoys pets. One thing most Kent residents know is that to take care of their beloved furry critters. From a full week vacation to a night out with friends, someone needs to look after the pets when the owners are gone. But what happen if the owners never come back? An untimely death of an owner has left many pets in animal shelters due to their owners failing to make provision for them in their living trust.

Long term care planning can be pain free for many Kent residents

Aside from morticians and funeral planners, not everyone thinks of death on a daily basis. The morbid thought may give many Kent residents goose bumps. One thing that is guaranteed in life is death. For many, it can come without warning and at any point of one's life. Just like a person puts off adjusting his or her clock after daylight savings, many adults put off their estate planning until it's too late.

For many Kent residents, setting up a trust is essential

When most Kent residents picture a living trust, they may naturally associate it with someone who is wealthy. For a long time the stereotype that trusts are only for the wealthy has cost many middle income individuals a lot of grief in probate court. In reality, a living trust can benefit most people.
