It’s not always fun to think about estate planning but being prepared for certain circumstances can help you and your family protect yourselves against substantial financial burdens or disputes. Several problems can arise if an estate is not well planned.
Using an experienced law firm to help you plan your estate and protect your assets is the best way to ensure financial security. Many Americans make the mistake of not preparing for crucial life events, but it doesn’t take much to get your affairs in order.
Gregory Homer Law can assist with several components of estate planning. We’ll explore our expert estate services in more detail below.
Power of Attorney
Selecting the right power of attorney is essential if you are unable to make decisions on your own. If you become incapacitated, a power of attorney will direct all financial and health-related decisions on your behalf. We can help you establish a power of attorney that keeps you and your interests safe in the case of an emergency.
Trusts and Wills
Our team of estate planning attorneys will help walk you through the process of creating wills and trusts. These are important documents that help protect your family. Some popular uses for wills and trusts include:
- Protecting your partner’s financial health in the case of your death
- Reducing exposure to estate tax
- Leaving funds to charities or organizations of your choice
- Leaving funds to friends or family
- Providing care for vulnerable people in your family
- Providing care for yourself in the case of a catastrophe
Representation in Probate Court
In the unfortunate event that probate court is required after the loss of your loved one, it’s essential to choose an attorney that can help you take your mind off your finances. We handle the complicated process of probate court for you so that you can focus on your family and loved ones. While it’s hard to imagine having to go to probate court to settle disputes, it’s essential to understand the potential risks if you want to protect you and your family.
While most people think of wills as posthumous documents, living wills are also very important if you want to protect your family. A living will provides direct instructions on how to treat catastrophic life events or emergencies. This helps your family members carry out your wishes if you’re unable to make your own decisions.
While this is beneficial for you, as it allows your wishes to be completed if you’re incapacitated, it also provides relief for your family. If your family know what your wishes are, they won’t have to make hard decisions on their own. It can prevent added stress on your family if the unimaginable occurs.
