Estate Planning in Winston-Salem, North Carolina

While many people think that estate planning is another term for making a will, in reality this term encompasses a number of different things, with last wills and testaments being only one of them. In addition to helping you distribute your property and plan what to do with your finances, our estate planning team can also help you with things like power of attorney. If you should become incapacitated and unable to make decisions (or unable to communicate those decisions), your power of attorney will step in to make them for you. This ensures that your wishes regarding things like resuscitation and emergency medical care are carried out, even if you can’t convey that information yourself.

Our team is proud to serve the Winston-Salem, North Carolina community, and we want to help you with all your estate planning needs. Just give us a call when you are ready to begin the process, and we will provide the expert assistance you deserve.

FAQs About Estate Planning

At the office of Robert G. Spaugh, Attorney at Law, we provide comprehensive estate planning services to help you plan for the future. Here are some common questions we receive about the estate planning process and their answers.

What is an estate plan?

An estate plan is a collection of legal documents and strategies that determine how your assets will be managed and distributed after your death. Most estate plans include a will, power of attorney, healthcare directive, and in some cases, a trust.

Why do you need an estate plan?

Your estate plan ensures your assets are distributed according to your wishes, minimizing estate taxes. Depending on your estate plan, you can also prevent your estate from undergoing the probate process. Additionally, your estate plan lets you appoint guardians for any minor children you have and make healthcare decisions in advance.

What happens if you die without a will?

If you die without a will, state laws will determine how to divide and distribute your assets. This can result in outcomes you might not have intended, such as certain relatives receiving more or less than you might have wished.

When should I update my estate plan?

You should update your estate plan following major life changes. For example, update your estate plan after you get married, divorced, have or adopt a new child, experience a major change to your financial situation, or something else.

How do I get started?

Get started by contacting our law firm directly and scheduling an estate planning consultation with us.
