Estate planning makes sense on a number of levels. If it’s done in an effective and thoughtful way, it can spare loved ones from having to make heart-wrenching choices about your care if you are ever incapacitated. It can keep the assets you worked so hard for in life from being wasted on legal fees. It can allow your family to focus on being there for each other during a time of grief instead of on probate.
Estate planning really is an investment in your family’s future well-being. In fact, it is essential. And yet, for a lot of different reasons, it’s also very easy to keep putting it off.
No two families are exactly alike, so a one-size-fits-all document purchased online isn’t likely to meet your needs and give you peace of mind.
At Mundahl Law, we provide a full range of services to help you create a thoughtful, effective estate plan specifically tailored for you and your family situation. Working together closely with you, we help you identify needs, clarify goals, and evaluate options. Once we have the right plan, our lawyers will draft the documents in a way that minimizes the chance of a dispute arising later.
General types of documents, services, and issues involved in our practice include:
We offer any of the above as stand-alone services, as well as packages that vary in price according to the complexity of your needs and assets.
An essentials package, for example, would include a basic will, an advanced health care directive, a HIPAA waiver, a durable power of attorney, and a review of your beneficiary designations. Cost starts at $1,000 for an individual and $1,500 for a couple.
If your goals or estate assets are more complex, you may need a revocable trust package instead. This would include all of the essentials listed above, plus everything needed to create and transfer assets into a revocable trust. Costs here start at $2,500 for an individual and $4,000 for couples.
