When To Start An Estate Plan

 Life can be unpredictable. That’s why having a solid estate plan in North Carolina is crucial, regardless of your age or stage in life. Whether you’re a young professional starting out, a member of our military, building a family, or in your retirement, our dedicated attorneys at Lanier Fountain & Ceruzzi are here to guide you through the process. We’ll ensure your wishes are clearly outlined and your loved ones are protected in the future.

Why Is It So Important?

An estate plan secures your wishes for your assets after you pass away, as well as appoints a person(s) to ensure that your wishes are fulfilled.  A will is necessary to prevent North Carolina laws from distributing your estate in ways that may not align with your wishes. It can help you plan for unfortunate scenarios as well, such as an event in which someone else would need to care for your children.

What Makes Up An Estate Plan?

A will is not the only document you will want in your plan. Our attorneys at Lanier Fountain & Ceruzzi can help you create a comprehensive plan that accounts for all your assets and needs. This may include:

  • A will and trust
  • Living will
  • Power of attorney
  • Health care power of attorney

We will help you understand the benefits of each of these components.
