Estate Planning Attorneys Las Vegas & Henderson
Understanding Estate Planning and Powers of Attorney
The term “estate planning” is a legal process to pre-arrange the way your property, money and assets are distributed to family and loved ones after you have passed on. It also addresses those plans if you are ever unable to care for yourself and make sound decisions. You can determine at what amount and to whom your assets will be distributed in order to prevent destructive conflicts among your family.
