July is National Family Reunion Month and it's typically a time to gather for barbecues, fireworks celebrations, pool parties and more. However, during unprecedented times that restrict how and where we can gather, we are all having to be more creative when trying to honor typical family traditions.
Now is a great time to consider ways in which to celebrate and protect your family's legacy well into the future. As we are all being forced to shift and modify many of our traditions, estate planning can be used as a tool to protect your family assets, or care for yourself or your loved ones in the event of unexpected circumstances.
Individuals and families in Tennessee can create legally binding documents such as wills and trusts to ensure that their assets are distributed according to their final wishes. What better way to preserve your family's legacy than to plan gifts ahead of time, assign beneficiaries, provide to charity, and ultimately prevent future disputes over your assets. Comprehensive estate plans can provide the peace of mind that comes from knowing the things you have worked for a lifetime to achieve can be protected and passed down in a manner that is private, avoids probate administration, potentially reduces your tax burden and ensures your wishes are respected.
