What is Estate Planning?
Estate planning deals with the transfer of property at death as well as what will happen to you and your loved ones personally and financially in the event of your incapacity or death. There are many worthwhile estate planning goals. You can plan to maximize the amount of your estate that passes onto your heirs, ensure that your minor children are taken care of by designating guardians and if appropriate, establishing a trust for their benefit, ensure that your health is handled according to your wishes, and position yourself to be eligible for Medicaid without depleting all of your assets, among other goals.
What is Probate Law?
Probate attorneys assist with the legal process that takes place after someone dies. The primary purpose of the probate process is to pay the deceased person’s debts and taxes and transfer his property to his heirs and beneficiaries. However, probate involves many laws and forms and can be time consuming, complicated and confusing without counsel, which is why our probate attorneys can be helpful.
