A Plan For Your Estate Is A Gift That Lives On
Losing a loved one is always difficult. One of the best things we can do to support our loved ones after their loss is to make sure there’s a path for them to follow. This should answer questions they have both before and after you pass, such as what to do if you are unable to care for yourself, what to do with your home, how to instruct your doctors about your care and how to manage your assets after you pass.
Our Santa Rosa Beach estate planning attorney is available to provide guidance to individuals and families with a variety of legal needs, including:
- Wills and trusts
- Limited family partnerships
- Gift, tax and charitable giving considerations
- Living wills
- Power of attorney
- Health care surrogates and designation of preneed guardians
- Asset protection strategies
- Probate proceedings: summary, regular and contested
- Guardianship and conservatorship proceedings
The key here is to choose what documents and plans you need wisely. For instance, a will serves a different purpose than a trust. You may have small children who need a care plan; a will can accommodate this. You may have a business, house or investments that would benefit from the tax protections a trust offers. Attorney Uhlfelder will sit down with you, discuss the details of your estate and help identify a personalized plan that protects your assets and your loved ones.
Here To Help When It Is Time To Administer An Estate
All estates go through the probate process, but that process looks very different for those with an estate plan than it does for those without. If you are the executor of an estate, you should be very careful to administer it correctly, not only because you want to do right by your passed loved one, but also because there are serious legal ramifications for mismanagement.
