Estate Planning for Pets

Most people are aware that a good estate plan should contain provisions to distribute assets to loved ones while avoiding probate.  However many families also have pets that are part of the family.  It is important to include provisions in your estate plan to address what will happen to your pets in the event of your death.  This can include who will care for your pets if something happens to you and can also include financial distributions to care for your pets.  Nevada law also specifically allows for pet trusts.  This type of planning can give you the peace of mind that your family, including your beloved pets, will be taken care of should something should happen to you.  Should you have any questions regarding including your pets in your estate plan, feel free to call one of our attorneys to discuss how you can make sure your pets are taken care of.
