The death of a spouse, a divorce, or bankruptcy, all can affect your finances. If these changes are not properly planned for, family members can be stressed with making decisions that they don’t want to.

An updated estate plan helps make sure that your loved one’s benefit from your hard work. Leonard J. Berger, Jr. can help you modify your estate plan as your circumstances change.

Some legal documents he can help draft include:

  • Wills: If you have a spouse or children, it is important that you create a will. If you do not have a will, Pennsylvania law is given the option of determining what happens to your children, your money, and your estate after you die.
  • Trusts: Establishing a trust makes sure that all of your assets transfer to your heirs are used for good purposes. Trusts also gives unique tax advantages. However, trusts are not as flexible as wills when conditions change, so they may not be appropriate for all estates.
