Palmer, Alaska Estate Planning

In a town as small as Palmer, Alaska, family is important, and making sure your family is provided for at all times is the goal of many loving citizens.

Making sure that your family is cared for after your death is one of the many things to think about when it comes to taking care of them. Having an estate plan, which determines who will receive your assets and how much they will receive (among other things), can help protect your family.

Your spouse, children, friends, or even an Alaska organization that is important to you can all be included in your estate plan. If you have young children, this plan will give you the opportunity to ensure that they are taken care of by a trustworthy, responsible adult if you are no longer able to care for them.

Planning for the future is important, and it is never too early to do so. If you leave your family behind without an established estate plan, an Alaska court will decide how your estate is passed on based on state law.

Unfortunately, making these decisions can be difficult, especially if you make them alone. And when the time comes to pass on an estate, it will typically go through probate, which has many complexities and can seem frustrating.
