What is the benefit of Estate Planning in Pittsburgh? 

  1. Control Over Transfer of Assets: By drafting up a will and/or trust, you can take control over exactly who gets what after you die. If you die without a will or trust, then your assets and property will be distributed in accordance with Pennsylvania’s intestacy statute. You have zero control whatsoever as to who gets what because the statute will control who gets what. 
  2. Asset Protection: In certain situations, you can draft trusts in a way to protect those assets from creditors, which otherwise would not have been possible without an estate plan.
  3. Tax Benefits: In certain situations, an estate plan can be crafted in such a way to create favorable tax treatment. 
  4. Avoid Probate: A trust can be utilized to eliminate or reduce the need for the time-consuming and costly-process known as probate. 
  5. Hopefully Reduce Chances Family Infighting: If you set out a plan exactly how you want your assets and property distributed, then hopefully this reduces the chances of family infighting over property and assets after you die.
