Tempe Estate Planning Attorney

Estate Planning & Probate in Tempe, AZ

Tempe is a city in Maricopa County, Arizona and was named after the Vale of Tempe in Greece. Today, Tempe is home to the largest campus of Arizona State University as well as several great performance venues such as the Gammage Auditorium and the Tempe Center for Arts. Visitors and residents of Tempe enjoy taking in an Arizona State University football game at the Sun Devil Stadium, enjoying ASU Research Park or heading over to Tempe Town Lake for a fireworks show. Tempe is a frequent travel destination for people throughout the state and across the nation.

When you take into consideration all that you own including your home, automobiles, cash in bank accounts, investments, life insurance, retirement plans, personal belongings and collectibles and everything that you stand to accumulate in the upcoming years, you do have an estate. People frequently fail to establish an estate plan because they believe they need to be wealthy or near retirement, but this isn't true.

Estate planning should be a part of everyone's overall financial plan, especially if you own a home or have a family. If you fail to plan and write a "deathbed will" at the last minute, your assets can be subject to probate and that will can be questioned for lack of testamentary capacity, undue influence or fraud.

Establishing an estate plan allows you get to be in control of how your assets and property are distributed when you pass away and not the state. Without a will or a trust, you have no voice in the matter and there is no guarantee that your property will be distributed the way you would have wanted. Not only does an estate plan allow you to choose how you want your assets distributed, but it can nominate a guardian and conservator for minor children and it can allow you to nominate someone to make financial and health care decisions for you if you become incapacitated due to illness or injury.

It is never too soon to get your estate planning in order and by contacting a Tempe estate planning lawyer from Grant N. McKeehan, PLC, you can rest easier knowing that your loved ones can enjoy the financial security they deserve.
