Avoid the mess of legal fees.

While it’s unpleasant to think about, if you don’t have an estate plan, everything you ever worked for could be tied up in the courts for a year, or longer. It could cost your family money in probate, legal fees, and emotional turmoil. Additionally, your estate could potentially get double-taxed by the government and could be a real mess for your family.

Do I need an
estate plan?

Your family will be taken care of.

The truth is, everyone needs a legal plan, no matter the size of your estate so you can be confident that your wishes will be carried out without burdening your loved ones. At the end of the day, can you put a price on the knowledge that your family and friends will be taken care of after you pass away?

Are your assets working for you?

Retirement means different things to different people, and this is why Barber Financial Group doesn’t have one set plan, one fixed path, or one set of investments to get you to your destination.

Frequently asked questions.

Do I need a will or a trust? Both?

Because of their many advantages, revocable trusts are popular estate planning tools. Depending on your particular circumstances, a revocable trust may be beneficial in planning your estate. Revocable trusts are very flexible. You can make changes to the trust or revoke the trust at any time for any reason, as long as you are mentally competent. Further, there are few restrictions on the choice of trustees and beneficiaries. Finally, when drafting a revocable trust, you have many options regarding the management and distribution of your assets to your heirs upon your death.

What is Probate?

Probate is the process of collecting your assets, paying your debts and taxes, and transferring the property owned by you, at your death, to your heirs.
