Benefits of an Estate Plan
Before creating an estate plan with an Oktibbeha County lawyer, we invite you to explore the multiple benefits of an estate plan and establishing one. Our law firm can provide you with the resources and knowledge needed to make important life decisions for you and get you started towards protecting you, your family and valuable assets.
Change of Beneficiary
Due to the fact that circumstances and peoples' lives change over the years, it's exceedingly important to keep the change of beneficiary designations current and up to date. A significant percentage of our clients' wealth is controlled by beneficiary designations, thus we stress the importance of keeping beneficiary designations current.
Estate administration is the process of settling a decedent's estate by paying all debts and claims against the estate and distributing what's left among the rightful beneficiaries. Whenever you are appointed as an executor or an administrator, you will need to be represented by an attorney through the probate process.
When an individual passes away, their estate is distributed through the court process of probate. We can equip you with the superior client service needed to make the procedure as smooth and as quick as possible.
Last Will & Testament
Now is the time to create a last will and testament with an estate planning lawyer. This legal document is used to incorporate your exact wishes and is essential in keeping your loved ones and estate protected.
Powers of Attorney
This Powers of Attorney document is useful when you need someone to act on your behalf. By creating one with a professional, you can specify the name of an individual you trust to act on your behalf, instead of letting the court decide.
Advance Health Care Directives
If and when you become incapacitated, an advance health care directive becomes extremely important. This document specifies your health care requests regarding whether or not you want to donate your organs, who you want as your primary physician, if you wish to continue treatment and so on.
