Ensuring That Your Plan Is Up-To-Date As Life Changes
We have developed a system that will allow you to pay flat rate fees for most of our services. Through our membership programs, you can, keep your plan up to date to account for changes in the law and your family, assets or financial situations. We ensure that your assets are safe during your lifetime and available for your loved ones without the probate process after you pass away. We also design plans that will pass along your values, intangible assets, legacy and things you want to be remembered for to the people you love.
When you experience life changes such as a divorce, new marriage that creates a blended family, the loss of a loved one, or an increase or decrease in your assets, our estate planning model will advise and assist you to prepare such documents that will account for such changes and effectively plan for the future.
Estate Planning To Protect Your Children
Planning for your minor children is very important. A will may not be enough to protect your children if you happen not to return home to them if anything happens to you. Your children are counting on you and your estate plan should begin with ensuring your children would always be taken care of by the people you want, in the ways you want no matter what happens. This will avoid them being taken into the custody of the Child Protective Services, or family members that may not really want to take up the extra burden of caring for your children.
Additionally, the assets given to your minor children will end up in probate process and the value of your assets lost in the process until your child turns 18 years old and gets a check for the balance without any guidance. At Ivylaw we offer Kid’s Protection Plans to cover, protect and prevent such unthinkable incidences.
