These 3 tips can help you lower the value of your estate

Your estate is worth millions, so you know that there is a true risk of facing an estate tax. While an estate tax is only charged on those who have an estate worth $11.4 million or more as of 2019, the reality is that any amount over that amount is highly taxed. Estate taxes may not seem fair, and you are right to start looking into ways to reduce the taxes you face.

Seeking a conservatorship for your relative

If you have elderly or very ill parents or grandparents or other relatives, the time may come when they can no longer care for themselves. Should that unfortunate day come, you might find yourself in the unenviable position of having to determine whether or not to seek a conservatorship for them.

What do conservators actually do?

Anybody can end up needing a conservator. Young children who are left without parents due to illness or accidents may need them. So, too, may younger adults who suffer from severe developmental disorders or other conditions. Seniors may need them due to advancing dementia or their general physical decline.
