Get Started Today
It’s imperative that you create a will and keep it updated throughout your life. You want it to be updated to make it easier and more accurate for your family after you pass away. A will is a legal document in which you state to whom your assets and properties will go in the event of your death. It will also state who will be the guardian of your children.
If there are any disputes regarding a will, we will provide the litigation necessary to determine the will’s validity and to ease stress and tension among the deceased’s loved ones.
While a will distributes your property after you pass away, a trust distributes property during life and after. At any time you may assign someone to be a trustee for your property. With a trust, you can organize provisions for children with disabilities. Also, trusts avoid probate and remain private. While working with an attorney, you can create a wide range of trusts.
Powers of Attorney
A Power of Attorney is a person you appoint to make your financial or medical decisions in the event that you are no longer able to do so. This is a person you trust to make the best possible resolutions on your behalf.
Probate is the process of validating a will in the event of a person’s death. This process is handled by a judge and the judge will then determine a personal representative to distribute the deceased’s assets according to their will, as well as pay off any remaining bills and notify creditors. Our attorneys can guide you during this process as it can be confusing.
Advance Healthcare Directive
In an advanced healthcare directive, you state your intentions for your healthcare in the event that you are no longer able to make these decisions.
