February 2019 Archives

Why should the average person worry about estate planning?

Louisiana readers who have worked hard to build wealth, earn a decent living and save for retirement often overlook the importance of planning for long-term financial and legal needs. Estate planning is a critical step for people of all income levels, including those who do not consider themselves wealthy or those who do not own any assets that are exceptionally valuable. One of the main benefits of taking this step is that it allows a person to have control over what happens to his or her property in the future.

When a couple divorces, usually one partner ends up paying spousal support to another.

AB trusts in estate planning in Louisiana

Writing an estate plan can be a bit confusing. There are a lot of terms that likely aren't too clear, but having some knowledge about what they mean may make estate planning decisions for Louisiana residents much easier and less time-consuming.

An A trust is sometimes referred to as a marital trust or a marital deduction trust, while a B trust is sometimes called a bypass, credit shelter or family trust.

Estate planning: Declining an inheritance in Louisiana

Loved ones usually expect to be included in a close family member's will. But in certain situations an inheritance is neither expected, nor wanted.
