WILLS & TRUSTS OVERVIEW
Preplanning will provide you and your loved ones the comfort of knowing that life altering decisions have been made in advance of difficult times. Accidents and illness affect people of all ages, regardless of marital status or wealth. A Last Will and Testament provides you with the opportunity to declare your wishes for the distribution of your estate upon your death.
Designating a Health Care Surrogate and establishing a Living Will offers you the ability to control medical treatment that will be administered to you if you are unable to voice your wishes during a medical emergency and/or during end-of-life treatment alternatives.
Appointing a Pre-Need Guardian avoids the necessity of being placed into an adult guardianship in the event you become incapacitated due to illness, such as Dementia, Alzheimer’s, or accident.
Estate planning has become an integral part of our law firm’s family law practice. Upon dissolution of marriage, it is critical to revisit the beneficiaries that were assigned to insurance policies, investment accounts, IRA’s etc. Also, upon dissolution of marriage, one’s estate could potentially become a distribution to minor children rather than to a surviving spouse. The establishment of a Trust to protect your minor children is critical in these circumstances. The majority of issues can be resolved with preplanning ones’ estate. Preplanning will alleviate the difficulty of having loved ones deal with the complexity of the court process.
