What is Estate Planning?
Estate Planning refers to more than just the actions you take to arrange for the disposal of your assets at the time of death. It also allows you to designate who will care for your minor or disabled children, make decisions on your behalf if you are unable, and indicate dying wishes.
You may choose to include specific final arrangement preferences, such as whether to be buried or cremated, in your documents. More sophisticated estate plans may even cover deferring or decreasing estate taxes or winding up a business.
Generally, Estate Planning will allow you to eliminate any uncertainty over the administration of your Estate by expressing your desires in writing now. Proper and efficient Estate Planning can also maximize the value of your Estate by reducing taxes and other expenses.
Our Estate Planning Attorneys will personally meet with you to assess your Estate Planning needs and prepare an Estate Plan that will give you the peace of mind needed to live life to its fullest.
The first step is a simple one: find the confidence and compassion you need by contacting the experienced and dedicated Estate Planning lawyers at Walden & Pfannenstiel today.
What is Probate?
Probate is the court-supervised legal process whereby a deceased person’s assets are gathered, debts are paid, and any remainder is distributed to beneficiaries either through a Last Will and Testament (Testate) or based on the State Statutory scheme (Intestate). In other words, Probate is used to decide who gets your property when you are gone and to facilitate the transfer of said property.
Our Probate Attorneys will help you:
- Understand what Probate means in your individual situation
- Deal with the emotional issues surrounding your personal legal matter
- Decide if Probate is necessary
- Find the most cost effective and efficient way to maneuver your case
- Walk you through the process step-by step
