Wills and trusts are two crucial components of any estate plan. Even if you are young and in good health, you can use these tools to set your loved ones up for a secure future if something happens to you unexpectedly.

Attorney Cindi Quay can help you protect your future through the wise use of wills and trusts. At Quay & Associates, P.A., she provides friendly and knowledgeable estate planning services for clients in Craven County, Carteret County and Pamlico County.

Caring Help Creating A Custom Will

A will, also called a last will and testament, is a document that names your beneficiaries and which assets you would like them to inherit. If you pass away intestate, or without a will, the state will take control of your assets and distribute them according to North Carolina’s laws of intestacy.

Cindi understands that creating a will can feel emotional, so she always treats you with the utmost respect and care. When you sit down with her, she will help you create a custom document that clearly states how your executor should handle your assets. She takes the steps to make sure the document will hold up in court so you can have peace of mind about its validity.

How A Trust Can Provide For Your Loved Ones

A common misconception about trusts is that they are for only very wealthy people. Trusts can benefit people at every income level. You can use trusts for a spectrum of purposes, including:

  • Passing assets on to someone you love
  • Providing care for someone who has special needs
  • Making sure the beneficiary does not squander money
  • Preventing family fights
  • Avoiding probate
  • Minimizing tax penalties
  • Donating to charity

When you make your estate plan, Cindi can explain all your options when it comes to trusts. Then, she can help you establish the trusts best suited for your needs. She will also answer all your questions about the process.
