What Questions Should You Ask Your Estate Lawyer?

Everyone should have some sort of estate plan in place. As many experts suggest, there is much more to an estate plan than simply the will. It is also a very fragile area of preparation and the people we entrust with our affairs after we are gone should be trusted and the estate lawyer left with a clear understand of how we want our estate affairs handled.

As such the services of an estate lawyer should be rendered with a perfect understanding, on our behalf too, of what to expect throughout the process. What we should ask our estate lawyers should answer questions such as what the payment terms are. Paying an hourly rate may suggest that the estate lawyer does not have the client’s best interest at heart. How to avoid probate, how long does the process take, what is involved in setting up a trust, what kinds of trusts are we looking at, does the estate lawyer offer a maintenance program in which the estate plan can be updated as life situations change, what experience does the estate lawyer have? Ideally one with a few years’ experience under the belt is preferable.
