Probate is the judicial process whereby a will is “proved” in a court of law and accepted as a valid public document that is the true last testament of the deceased, or whereby the estate is settled .
But not all matters need to go to probate. That is where our probate law firm often comes in. We help you plan before your heirs, loved ones or family members have to deal with your passing and use estate planning to plan passing your property outside of probate.
Estate planning is the process of anticipating and arranging, during a person’s life, for the management and disposal of that person’s estate during the person’s life and after death, while minimizing gift, estate, generation-skipping transfer, and income tax.
Matters we handle when we do an estate plan
- Powers of Attorney
- Medical Directives
- Beneficiary designation forms
- Deeds with Life Estates
We help you with the above to make a proper plan for your loved ones to take care of your hard earned estate and property matters.
Elder law is the area of law that specializes on issues that affect the aging population. The purpose of elder law planning is to prepare the elderly person for financial freedom and autonomy through proper financial planning and long-term care option.
We use estate planning tools and more to handle your elder law issues and long term planning. We help you with Medicare and help with other governmental solutions for your special needs as you get older.
Someones an estate has to be probated and we handle filing the probate, proving up the will, contesting a will if needed, and determining the proper distribution of assets if a loved one dies intestate (without a will)
