Estate Planning

Local Estate Planning Attorneys in Santa Clarita

Planning for the future: when we talk about the details of your estate and how the world will move on after you leave it, “the future” feels a lot less…exciting.

While estate planning might seem easier to just deal with all those details later, that’s – unfortunately – one of the scariest things you can do! You’re building a beautiful life with intention – are you just going to leave the rest to chance?

With our team of estate planning lawyers at Odom Law Group, APLC, you don’t need to worry. The process doesn’t have to be stressful, and that bit of planning now means your wishes carry on into the future without skipping a beat. We’ll handle everything, together.

What does Estate Planning mean for me?

Estate planning, at its most basic level, is outlining a guide for what you’d like to happen when you’re no longer here. It can be as simple or as detailed as you’d like, and it should balance both clarity and flexibility. After all, part of thinking about the future is expecting the unexpected!

Here are some of the things you’ll want to consider in your planning.

  • Children and dependents: who would you want to take care of them and do they need a special needs trust setup?
  • Future planning for accounts and assets: what happens to your investments?
  • Medical care: are there treatments and procedures you definitely want (or don’t want) in the event of a serious injury or illness?
  • Important stuff: who would you want to have your most treasured possessions?

By working closely with an estate planning legal advisor, you can create an estate plan that fits you personally. With the estate planning law firm of Odom Law Group, APLC, rest assured that everything that’s important to you will be kept safe – in exactly the way you’d like.

Estate Planning in California

Local Santa Clarita Living Trust Attorneys

In California, part of your estate planning may include a living trust (or a revocable living trust). Now, more than ever, this has become an excellent way to ensure that your legacy and estate don’t get caught up in the probate process.

A revocable living trust can be an ideal choice in balancing planning with flexibility. Terminate or change the details whenever you’d like, but rest assured that:

  • Your planning eliminates the delays (and costs) of a formal probate proceeding
  • You’ve minimized estate taxes for your loved ones
  • Your financial matters remain orderly and private – no judges necessary
  • Your property will go to the right people, on the timeline you indicate
