The Estate Planning Process in Framingham

Comprehensive & Strategic Planning

Cali Law does not do things halfway. When you get an estate plan from Cali Law, you get not only a living trust, but also two wills, two durable powers of attorney, and two healthcare proxies.

Unlike most law firms that don't make prices clear or concrete, Cali Law charges a flat $1895 fee for any estate plan, $1495 for a standalone ILIT, $995 for an ILIT when purchased with an estate plan, $1295 for a standalone Medicaid Trust, or $895 for a Medicaid Trust when purchased with an estate plan. We use advanced, time-saving estate plan drafting software so that we can spend more time advising you and tailoring your plan to your needs, all while saving you money.

Living Trusts

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 percent 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 to be maximally efficient for both estate taxes and income taxes.

Wills

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; they will simply pour the assets into your trust. If you have minor children, a will is also necessary so that you can choose who will be your children's guardian after your death.

Powers of Attorney

We provide durable powers of attorney so that if you are incapacitated, your chosen agent can act for you, paying your medical bills, paying your mortgage, and managing your investments.

Healthcare Proxies

We also provide healthcare proxies so that your agent can act for you and make decisions about when to continue life support or when to stop it, where to bury you, or whether to make organ donations, without having to go to court.

Life Insurance

Additionally, if you own or are thinking of purchasing life insurance, Cali Law would love to assist you in contributing such a policy to an irrevocable life insurance trust ("ILIT"). Such a trust can be designed to prevent estate tax inclusion and to help your heirs save money.

Medicaid Trusts

At Cali Law, we also offer Medicaid trusts to protect your assets in case you end up in a nursing facility or 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 of your life and want to be able to leave assets to your children, you may want to consider a Medicaid trust. Creating such a 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.
