Protection That Lasts Longer Than a Lifetime

Having an estate plan in place will not only ensure that your assets are protected in the event of your passing, but it also helps to protect your loved ones when you are no longer able to. Estate planning isn’t just for the wealthy, it is for anyone with assets. Having a plan in place can help you protect your loved ones from tax burdens and distribute your assets accordingly rather than leaving it up to the state to decide. If you have children that are minors you can also name who you’d like their legal guardian to be. Without having a plan in place the state will determine how your assets will be divided and determine who the guardian of your children will be.

What to Look for in an Estate Planning Attorney

The estate planning attorney you choose matters. Look for an attorney that has a strong background in estate planning and probate administration in New Mexico. The more experience they have handling these types of cases the better. They will be able to help you answer any specific legal questions you might have and help you to create a plan that will work for you and help protect your loved ones.

What Questions Should You Ask An Estate Planning Attorney?

If you are trying to find a good estate planning attorney, the most important questions you should ask relate to the attorney’s experience in this area of the law. Look for an attorney whose practice focuses on estate planning as opposed to someone who only occasionally prepares a will or power of attorney.

It may be more important to know what questions your estate planning attorney should be asking you. A good estate planner will want to know about your basic family structure and your assets and debts, of course, but will also want to know:

  • if you have concerns about any of your beneficiaries
  • if any beneficiaries are receiving or are likely to receive government benefits
  • if the people you intend to name to act on your behalf are reliable and appropriate
  • if you foresee any family issues arising as a result of your plan and how those issues can be avoided
  • if your beneficiary designations on life insurance, retirement plans, bank accounts, etc. reflect your overall wishes

If your attorney is not asking these types of questions, you cannot be assured that the plan they develop will be appropriate for your specific circumstances.
