Clients are sometimes reluctant to discuss estate planning because death is never a light subject. However, if you die without executing a will or trust, there is no guarantee that your property will be distributed as you wish. While the intestate statutes seek to be fair they do not consider specific circumstances, like charitable desires or family members who require long-term support. Certainly, your heirs will want direction, too.
Alyssa A. Herbold, P.L.C. is here for you for the estate planning and probate processes. I can assess your assets and desires to see what type of plan is appropriate for you. Many clients need only a will while others implement a will with a testamentary trust. Others also desire documents that are effective at incapacitation, like powers of attorney or advance medical directives. We can discuss options at your consultation.
When you pass away, your family is still not left behind. Probate is the court process by which your will becomes effective and I can guide them through that. This relieves much of the stress your family could face at your death while also attempting to manage grief. You perform a good service planning ahead in these cases.
