Estate Planning


Professional Estate Planning Services in Louisville, KY

It’s never too early to start thinking about your estate. Some people believe that estate planning is only necessary for wealthy families with significant fortunes to pass on to their children; others try to avoid thinking about their estate altogether. The truth is, putting your estate in order is important for any family. At Pitt & Emison, we provide estate planning services in Louisville, KY, for clients of all ages and walks of life. Contact us today to get started.

We like to tell people that estate planning is not “death planning” — it’s “life planning.” With guidance from our team, you’ll be able to live a happier, more relaxed life, knowing that your loved ones will be provided for and your wishes respected.

Wills

A will lets you name the people or organizations you want to receive your assets after your death. There are specific requirements for preparing and signing a will, but our estate planners will help you through the whole process.

Trusts

A trust allows you to designate your assets to a trustee for the benefit of another person — or yourself. It is common for assets to be held in trust until a child comes of age. A revocable living trust lets you provide for yourself in the event of disability or impairment without your assets going to probate.

 

Power of Attorney

A power of attorney is a legal document that allows you to name an agent to act on your behalf when you are unable to act for yourself. It is often used for elderly people who have lost the ability to make sound decisions for themselves, but it can also be used in other situations. For example, some adult children sign the power of attorney documents so that their parents can take care of banking and other financial matters while they are at college.
