San Fernando Valley Inheritance Planning Attorney Helps Clients Set Up Their Estate Plans in California

As your parents, grandparents and other loved ones set up estate plans, they may name you as a beneficiary for certain property or assets in the event of their passing. When these inheritances may be more substantial, planning for how you will manage them in the future can be essential to minimizing your costs while maximizing the value of the inheritance.

At the Law Offices of Darrell C. Harriman, I have been helping people appropriately plan for their future inheritances since 1980. In addition to assisting people in the development of wills and other estate planning tools for their future inheritances, I am also experienced at devising unique, effective inheritance planning solutions to meet my clients’ needs and wishes.

Factors to Consider with Inheritance Planning in Mission Hills, California

As you move forward with inheritance planning, there may be various issues and factors to consider, only some of which may include:

  • The type of asset(s) or property that will be inherited – The best options for inheritance planning for liquid assets can be far different than those for property, bonds, securities and other types of assets. I am skilled at evaluating various types of inherited assets to develop the most appropriate options for them for the future.
  • The financial situation of the beneficiary – A beneficiary’s current financial standing can be critical to inheritance planning, as it can make spending or saving an inheritance more important (or something that beneficiaries may want to avoid). For instance, when beneficiaries may have significant debt, inheritance planning may be focused on paying down debt and setting up retirement savings. In contrast, when beneficiaries may be financially sound, inheritance planning may be more appropriately focused on making a variety of investments to further improve beneficiaries’ financial standing.
  • Whether the beneficiary has an existing estate plan – If beneficiaries do not already have estate plans in place, then the promise of some future, substantial inheritance can make it critical for beneficiaries to start their own estate planning. Alternatively, when beneficiaries do have estate plans in place, inheritance planning may involve revising the terms of people’s wills (and other estate planning documents) to account for the inherited property and/or assets.

The bottom line is that there is a lot to consider with inheritance planning, and having an inheritance planning attorney assisting you can help you put the best plans in place for a future inheritance.
