The Estate Planning process is started by having an initial discussion with your lawyer. Good & Good offers a free initial consultation. This is your opportunity to have many of your questions answered and to get familiar with your Estate Planning options. This is also the lawyers opportunity to ask important questions about you, your family, and your assets so that the lawyer can better guide you through the Estate Planning process. The initial consultation usually takes about 1 to 1 ½ hours. You do not need to fill out any forms prior to the consultation and you will not be asked to bring any financial statements with you. However, the attorney will want to know, in general, the type of assets that you own and the approximate value of those assets. You should also have a general idea of who you want to benefit from your estate once you are gone. You will also be asked if you have identified certain persons to handle your affairs upon your death or incapacity. If you are having trouble identifying such persons, your lawyer can help you with the decision making process and offer up some alternatives.
