We work with your referring advisor, so we can understand your financial background, your situation and needs. During this part of the estate planning process, you will complete our Estate Planning Deficiencies Check-Up, provide us with basic contact information, and begin to identify and express your goals and concerns using our Estate Planning Design Questionnaire.
We will discuss in detail your background and family, goals and concerns, and issues identified in the Estate Planning Design Questionnaire that require further consideration.
At the end of this meeting, a fee range will be quoted based on a preliminary plan design.
During this meeting, your proposed estate plan design will be presented to you in plain English and with easy to understand outlines and diagrams. Together, we will work through the details of the proposed plan to create a customized estate plan strategy that means your goals and objectives while addressing your concerns and anxieties.
We review the documents to ensure that you understand your estate plan and that it meet your goals and objectives. If you want us to do so, we will educate your family members, executors, trustees, agents and beneficiaries about your plan, and their roles in the plan, and why the plan is designed as it is. At this point, you will also sign the legal documents to implement the estate plan.
Note: We take confidentiality very seriously. Subject to certain limitations, nothing about your estate plan will be revealed unless you specifically authorize us to release it.
Once the estate plan documents have been executed, we assist you with beneficiary designation changes and other funding issues to ensure the planning is effective and works as designed.
