Two Key Parts Of Estate Planning

Estate plans cover a lot of legal issues, but these two are priorities for many:

Probate: This is when courts confirm a will is valid. It includes finding and valuing the deceased person’s property, paying bills and taxes, and giving what’s left to the right people. There’s lots of paperwork and deadlines, and sometimes family disagreements.

Guardianship: This is when someone is given the power to look after someone else who can’t care for themselves, maybe because of old age or a disability. It’s a way to take care of older adults, adults who can’t manage on their own, and children without parents.

Our team can take care of these details, so your family can focus on supporting each other.
