Estate Planning And Wills
Estate plans are legally binding documents that provide your family members with one less important decision to make should a tragedy occur. Estate plans are created to ensure your wishes are granted in case of sudden death or disability.
We can craft an estate plan that includes the following components:
- Living trusts
- Deferring or increasing federal estate taxes
- Property ownership
- Family limited partnerships
Regardless of your current circumstances, we can craft an estate plan that protects your rights, your assets and your loved ones.
A living will spells out your end-of-life decisions should you be unable to communicate. Having a living will allows your family peace of mind knowing that your wishes are being respected.
Dependent And Independent Administration
The terms dependent and independent administration refer to the level of court involvement in a probate case. In a dependent administration, the court approves every decision for the sale and distribution of property and assets. There also is generally a level of distrust between parties. In an independent administration, an individual is appointed to make all decisions regarding the estate and report back to the court.
