Enforce Your Wishes with Disability Planning

Appointing a power of attorney, or "agent" in charge, is another important step to take when planning an estate. This process will ensure you will have help with future healthcare and managing your estate in the event that you cannot. If you ever become ill, incapacitated, or unable to speak for yourself, this protection will appoint someone else to prioritize your wishes. Without powers of attorney in place, your family could be burdened with difficult decisions, and you could receive healthcare that you may not prefer. 

One way to help ensure your care wishes are carried out is to create an advanced healthcare directive. This legal document specifies what actions should be taken for your health if you are no longer able to make decisions due to illness or incapacity. This document also lays out your physician or hospital of choice in advance, as well as the decision to continue life-prolonging treatment or withdraw treatment in appropriate situations.

We know that illness or disability can happen unexpectedly, which is why it's never too soon to prepare. Learn more about different powers of attorney and how we can help today!

Safeguard Your Family's Future with a Living Trust

A living trust is an estate planning method that helps families avoid the probate process and prevent courts from intervening with your estate at the time of your death. This is the method for providing clear end-of-life instructions, all the while saving you and your loved ones time, money, and maintaining privacy. Our Sacramento County legal team does whatever it takes to create an effective plan to protect your assets and property.

Without one of these options in place, mourning loved ones are often blindly left to handle the process of settling an estate. The Law Office of Vincent Van Ho is committed to helping you and your loved ones have a smooth process now, and through the end of life. See how our estate planning options can set you up for success.

Should You Set up a Revocable Living Trust?

A revocable living trust acts like a rulebook for how your assets will be handled when you pass away. Its flexibility and reliability make it a popular estate planning tool. 

The benefits of creating this type of trust include:

  • Minimizing Estate Taxes
  • Ability to the Avoid Probate Process
  • Assignment of Durable Power of Attorney
  • Privacy for the Trust Owner and Beneficiaries
  • Opportunity to Make Changes Anytime While You're Living

Setting up a revocable living trust gets everything planned ahead of time, so the distribution of your trust can be faster and easier once you pass. See how the Law Office of Vincent Van Ho can help give you more control over the future of your estate.

Gun Trusts

Once a will, trust, and power of attorney are established, clients often think they have all their boxes checked. However, adding a gun trust may be a smart addition. The biggest advantages of establishing this trust are the ability to name multiple gun owners, protect future gun transfers, and help beneficiaries avoid taxes when transferring the firearm. Don't let your firearms be left unclaimed after your passing. Speak with a trusted attorney to ensure they are properly taken care of now, and through the end of your life.
