Estate planning and philanthropy

Many Kent residents have a deep appreciation for the arts, religion and other non-profit organizations. These are values that they find important to support with their money and other gifts. Although many people think estate planning is about passing their assets on to their heirs, it can also be creating a legacy for years to come by passing assets on to a nonprofit organization.

Tips for dividing family heirlooms

Almost all Kent area residents have items that are special to them and their family. These items can include jewelry, artwork, pottery and many other items. When the time comes to create an estate plan including a will and family trust there are things to keep in mind when deciding how to divide these family heirlooms.

Basic power of attorney information

Most Kent area residents are not thrilled at discussing what would happen to them or their estate if they become incapacitated. It makes sense, because who really ever wants to think about the end of their life or a time when they are not able to make decisions? But, that time will come for each of us and careful planning will ensure a person's needs and wishes are met including health care decisions.

Keeping the family farm in the family

There are many families in the Kent area who have a connection to a family farm. There are still hundreds of family farms across Washington, many of them that have been in the same family for generations. Keeping these farms in the family is important for many residents and this can require planning and estate administration.

Establishing an estate plan

Most Kent area residents know how important an estate plan is, but making an estate plan can be a hard topic to discuss. No one really wants to think about their inevitable death and what will happen to their assets. But, by creating an estate plan, that may include a will, a person can have the peace of mind that the person's wishes will be honored.
