Legacy Planning

Legacy Estate Planning is for anyone at any age. Your Estate could represent one of the largest financial transactions of your life.

With advance planning and document organization, your family, Power of Attorney, and Executors will be able to execute your wishes efficiently and without stress.

We are organizational experts who will help you to coordinate all of your important documents in one convenient, catalogued location: the Legacy Plan Organizer.

Organizing everything that your Power of Attorney or Executor needs can be an overwhelming experience. During the consultation, we help to guide you with the following:

  • Discussion of over 15 categories of documents
  • Discovery and review of existing Estate Planning documents for potential updates, and organizing using the Legacy Plan Organizer
  • Documenting final wishes and direction for family members through the family meeting planner and discussion tips
  • Additional resource tools provided to support your Legacy Plan
  • Completed Legacy Plan Organizer binder as your final product

It is all about the conversation and at Hello Darlene we have ‘great conversations’ about your Legacy Planning.

Your story is the greatest legacy that you will leave to your friends and family. It’s the longest lasting legacy you will leave to your heirs.
