The true cost comes when you don't take action now ... when you are able to do so. We would all agree that the costs involved with going to court are significant. Therefore, we strongly suggest that you do your planning NOW and stay out of the probate system.
The cost to prepare each of the documents described above vary (for example the cost of a Power of Attorney is usually $100). Your personal situation will determine whether we suggest one or more of the estate planning documents. That is the reason that it is important to meet for an initial consultation ... so that you can learn what you need and why. Then you can make an informed decision and instruct US on which documents YOU wish.
To start the process give our office a call at (708) 371-9500 to schedule an appointment. When you call Colleen will schedule you and confirm that we charge a consultation fee of $100.00. However, should you have documents prepared that exceed $400.00, then the consultation fee will be credited against that amount. You can also email Colleen at Colleen@SmolinskiLtd.com
To begin the preparation of documents, we will ask that you sign an authorization indicating which documents you wish to be prepared. With your authorization we would ask that you tender 50% of the total costs of preparing the documents. The balance is due when the documents are reviewed and signed.
Don't wait to do these important documents!
