Secure Your Family's Future with a Living Trust

A living trust is vital for any Bay Stater looking to protect their family after their death. It is currently estimated that the average probate in Massachusetts takes 1-2 years and costs more than 5% of your entire estate.

When you get an estate plan from Cali Law, we will draft a trust so your heirs avoid probate. We can also draft the living trust for maximum efficiency regarding both estate taxes and income taxes.

Comprehensive Will Writing Services in Middlesex County

In addition to the living trust, we will also write two wills. These act as a backup in case you leave anything out of your trust. If you have minor children, a will is also necessary so that you can choose your children's guardian after your death.

Empower Your Loved Ones with Durable Powers of Attorney

We provide durable powers of attorney. If you are incapacitated, your chosen agent can act for you. They can pay your medical bills, pay your mortgage, and manage your investments.

Designate Healthcare Proxies for Medical Decisions

We also provide healthcare proxies so your agent can make important health decisions without having to go to court. These include:

  • When to continue life support
  • When to cease life support
  • Where to bury you
  • Whether to make organ donations

Life Insurance Trusts: Protect Your Beneficiaries

If you own or are considering purchasing life insurance, Cali Law would love to assist you. We can help in contributing such a policy to an irrevocable life insurance trust ("ILIT"). We can design this trust to prevent estate tax inclusion and to help your heirs save money.

Medicaid Trusts: Safeguard Your Assets from Long-Term Care Costs

At Cali Law, we offer Medicaid trusts to protect your assets in case you end up in a long-term care facility. Long-term care is not only expensive but can completely deplete your nest egg. If you have worked hard all your life and want to leave assets to your children, consider a Medicaid trust.

Creating a Medicaid trust is not easy and requires a skilled practitioner to make sure that all rules are followed. At Cali Law, we take pride in our experience and knowledge on this subject.

Commonly Asked Questions

How often should I update my estate plan?

It's recommended to review and update your estate plan every 3-5 years or whenever you experience a major life event, such as marriage, divorce, the birth of a child, or significant changes in your financial situation. Regular updates ensure that your estate plan continues to reflect your current wishes and circumstances.

Can life insurance be included in my estate plan?

Yes, life insurance can be included in your estate plan. By using an irrevocable life insurance trust (ILIT), you can keep the life insurance proceeds out of your taxable estate, potentially saving your heirs significant amounts in estate taxes. An ILIT can also provide a source of liquidity to pay estate taxes and other expenses.
