Florence and Myrtle Beach Estate Planning Attorneys Serving South Carolina

No matter the size of your estate, planning is important. It allows you, while you are still living, to ensure that your property will go to the people you want, in the way you want, when you want.

Careful estate planning permits you to save as much as possible on taxes, court costs and attorneys' fees. It also affords the comfort that your loved ones can mourn your loss without being simultaneously burdened with unnecessary red tape and financial confusion. The lawyers of Willcox, Buyck & Williams, P.A. have extensive experience handling a variety of estate planning matters and advise our clients so as to gain the maximum benefit of all laws, while, at the same time, carrying out that person's wishes.

Estate Planning Necessities
All estate plans should include, at minimum, two important estate planning instruments: a durable power of attorney and a will. The first is for managing your property during your life, in case you are ever unable to do so yourself. The second is for the management and distribution of your property after death.
In addition to these planning instruments, more and more Americans today are using revocable (or living) trusts. Revocable trusts help to avoid probate and to manage their estates both during their lives and after they're gone.
A complete estate plan should also include a medical directive that may encompass a number of different documents, including a health care proxy, a durable power of attorney for health care, a living will, and medical instructions.

Elder Law
Senior citizens must deal with many legal issues. In recent years, there has been a growing awareness of the need to address these issues, and there is now an area of practice known as elder law. Elder law is specifically designed to address the particular concerns of older citizens. By looking at the whole picture, before a crisis occurs, a plan can be developed to carry out your wishes to the greatest extent possible. Areas to address include: Long term care planning, spousal impoverishment issues, Medicaid qualification, disability planning, conservatorships and guardianships, supplemental needs trusts, denial of social security benefits, general estate planning, reverse mortgages, estate administration, and nursing home issues.
