Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to own a huge house for it to be considered an estate. Your “estate” consists of everything you own when you die. This will include all but not limited to your home, personal property, investments, bank accounts, retirement plans and any ownership or interest in a business or partnership.
Estate planning is the process of anticipating and arranging for the disposal of an estate during a person’s life. Estate planning typically attempts to eliminate uncertainties over the administration of a probate and maximize the value of the estate by reducing taxes and other expenses. However, the ultimate goal of estate plan is determined by the specific goals of the client and may be as simple or complex as the client’s needs dictate.
If you die without a will or living trust (“intestate,” in legalese), state law will determine how most of your belongings are distributed, and the result may not be what you would want. If you do not want the state to determine this matter, we recommend that you speak with a qualified estate planning attorney in Utah.
