I often tell people that if they are comfortable with the State of Idaho deciding how to distribute their assets after they die, they really have no need for a will or a trust. As you can imagine, most people want to take care of that themselves. If you have children, have been divorced, or have assets that you wish to pass to certain individuals, it is important to have a will or trust that is drafted by an experienced Idaho Estate Planning attorney.
When you hire me, Attorney Joel Tague, you will receive personal representation. I deal directly with you to resolve your unique Estate Planning issues. I will use my experience to create an estate plan that meets your needs while protecting your family's future.
A will is a testamentary instrument that is prepared while you are alive and decides how assets will be distributed after you pass away. As an Idaho Wills attorney, I am familiar with simple wills, complex wills and pour-over wills. You can rely on me to prepare your estate plan with care.
I am also knowledgeable of the Health Care Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and will properly draft your health care directives, guardianships and powers of attorney in order to avoid any future conflicts with health care providers regarding the dissemination of your personal information.
Trusts are instruments that can be used to avoid the probate process in Idaho. The title to your property is signed over to the trust and it becomes the owner. You are then able to designate beneficiaries who will enjoy the benefits and income of that property. As an Idaho Trust attorney, I am knowledgeable at establishing many types of trusts, including:
• Medicaid trusts
• Charitable trusts
• Special needs trusts
• Revocable and irrevocable trusts
The trustee is a person who manages the property in your trust. In a revocable trust, you can be your own trustee, or set up another individual to manage your affairs. I will guide you through the estate planning process and help you determine which trusts would benefit your family the most.
