What is Estate Planning?
In summary, estate planning is making a plan that names the people or organizations you want to receive the things you own after you die by taking steps now to make carrying out your plan as easy as possible later. Proper estate planning ensures that your affairs have been put in order and will be handled according to your wishes upon your passing or incapacitation. Additionally, your estate will be maximized for the benefit of your loved ones once you are gone.

Estate Planning Tools & Methods
Why is estate planning important? Without proper planning, your end-of-life wishes will not be known. The property and assets you spent a lifetime acquiring could be in jeopardy, hanging in the balance for Iowa probate court to divide.
At Howes Law Firm, P.C., our lawyers help individuals and families take advantage of estate planning tools such as:
- A last will and testament
- A living will, also known as an advance healthcare directive, that details what type of medical care interventions you want or do not want should you become unable to express your wishes
- Revocable and irrevocable trusts, into which your assets are transferred and handled according to your instructions
- Durable Power of Attorney for both medical and financial decisions, in which you authorize someone to act in your place should you become incapacitated
- Declaration of designee for disposition of remains, in which you name someone to make decisions as to how your remains will be handled as well as the type of ceremonies involved
- Guardianships and conservatorships
