Designing An Estate Plan To Protect Your Wishes
We have all had the experience of uncertainty when a family member or friend dies and no estate planning was undertaken. The best of intentions for what will happen when our time here comes to an end can be lost forever if we don’t take the time and fairly modest expense to prepare an estate plan. Children who are too young and inexperienced may lack the ability to manage money and may find themselves wasting assets that could have lasted throughout their lives. Sadly, an estate plan with a trust would have protected them, and by doing so, would have preserved your dreams for their future.
As parents, we often worry about what will happen when we die. An effective estate plan should address those concerns. Living Wills, Health Care Powers of Attorney, Trusts and Financial Powers of Attorney are an integral part of any estate plan and will ensure that your wishes are respected in all situations and that your passing will be handled predictably along the lines that you intend.
In addition to drafting estate plan documents, when a loved one has died, we provide assistance in the timely and effective probating of estates in the circuit court, again to ensure that your wishes or the wishes of a loved one are respected and applied to his or her beneficiaries as intended.
