Many people spend more time planning their vacations than planning their estates. This is probably because the vacation will happen sooner and because it's much more fun to plan. However, estate planning is much more important. Regardless of whether you are a married couple, domestic partner, individual, large family, small family, single parent, a person with a large amount of wealth or a person with a small amount of wealth, it is extremely important to plan your estate.
Armentrout & Associates is available to provide your family and your business with all the necessary support from selecting the proper business form and completing all the routine tasks like annual minutes, to providing representation in various major business transactions and acquisitions. Further, when the time comes, Armentrout & Associates will make it easy for you to pass on your business to the next generation or sell it for a fair price.
Armentrout & Associates has years of experience acting as trustee, providing trustee services, and making sure the provisions of a trust are carried out and defending the interests of the trusts we serve. We offer clients a level of attention that can develop only when there is a personal connection with our clients. Because of our long-standing relationships with our clients across practice areas, we can provide advice and counsel that frequently includes practical help. Our formal trustee services include holding assets of the trust, working with financial planners to manage the assets, and reporting regularly to the beneficiaries about the performance of the funds.
Armentrout & Associates utilizes State laws, Federal laws, insurance policies, trusts, limited partnerships, and limited liability companies to provide clients with solid asset protection planning. However, it is important to understand that the fundamental purpose of the legal tools employed in asset protection planning is neither to hide personal or business assets nor to deprive the U.S. Government of taxes derived from the income earned on those assets. Rather it is to shield assets from unforeseen attacks by dubious creditors or plaintiffs.
One of the most fulfilling things Armentrout & Associates does is to help families create a life plan. Our goal is to ensure that you, your family and your assets are protected and that your wishes are carried out. Armentrout & Associates believes each estate is different. We have an impressive history of assisting individuals and families in a full range of circumstances. Our firm takes the time to get to know your individual situation before moving forward with any type of planning. Our main focus is to provide a plan specifically tailored to your needs and to give you and your family peace of mind.
For many business owners, their personal wealth is directly tied to their business. Clients may also have real estate holdings or other unique investments that they would like to consolidate and keep in the family for generations. There is also the concern of the threat of creditors reaching their personal assets if a claim arises within their business. Successful business planning is an ongoing process that addresses all of these issues. When drafting a plan, Armentrout & Associates thinks about the process: keeping things simple, realistic, and achievable, as well as looking ahead three to five years with annual goals. As your plan is created, Armentrout & Associates also designs it with the knowledge that your business plan must be integrated with your overall estate plan, so that you and your family are poised for stability, growth, and success.
We are committed to provide you with the best possible service at the lowest possible overall cost. At all times, we want our work to be responsive to your needs and to be cost-effective. We usually work on a flat-fee basis so our clients know the total cost ahead of time so there are no surprises. Initial consultations are always free!
