The purpose of a living will

A last will and testament is a legal document detailing your final wishes. It addresses the distribution of your Pennsylvania property, appoints guardians of your minor children and a variety of other considerations. You may believe that is the only document you need. However, a living will serves another purpose. At Sweeney Law Offices, LLC, we often assist clients in creating a comprehensive estate plan that includes end-of-life decisions.

Identifying the best time to begin planning your estate

There is not a more satisfying feeling than knowing you have adequately planned for your future. Preparation from early on can provide you with the resources you need and desire, to live comfortably later on in life. At Sweeney Law Offices, LLC, we have been able to assist many families in Pittsburgh as they plan their estate. 

Understanding Pennsylvania's intestate succession guidelines

While most adults in Cranberry Township likely understand that they should start considering their estate planning, few have actually completed the process. Indeed, according to information shared by the American Association of Retired Persons, as many as 60 percent of Americans do not have a will. There may be many reasons why people put off estate planning: they may fear the prospect of facing their own mortality, or they may simply believe that they will always have time later to do it. Yet one of the primary reasons is likely misunderstanding. 

Creating an estate plan as a college student

Often, people think of older adults when they picture the type of person who sets up an estate plan. However, estate planning can offer a number of benefits for college students (as well as their parents) and these plans can be very helpful for people at a younger age. Whether you are currently attending college, plan on starting in the fall or have a child who is in college, it is important to look into the benefits of setting up an estate plan and take action if you are interested in the perks associated with estate plans.
