Understanding Wills And Trusts

Do You Have A Solid Estate Plan?

Wills and trusts are two of the most common estate planning documents. Through the use of these legal instruments, you can designate who receives your assets upon your death or who will take care of your minor children if you are no longer able to. You can set up a future financial fund for a child with disabilities, ensure that your pets are taken care, make contributions to charities and much more. However, no two families face the same set of life circumstances, so it is important to work with an estate planning lawyer who will ask about your unique needs and goals.

What A Will Or Trust Can Do For Your Family

At The Elder & Disability Advocacy Firm of Christine A. Alsop, LLC, we know that our clients have many reasons for creating wills and trusts, including:

  • Transferring assets and personal property upon their death
  • Legally transferring assets during their lifetime to qualify for Medicaid
  • Designating guardians for minor children in the event of early death
  • Establishing special needs trusts for children or family members with disabilities
  • Helping their families avoid the probate process
  • Protecting their assets and their families
  • Peace of mind

Regardless of your personal reasons, now is the right time to create a will and/or a trust. We will help you understand what each legal instrument can and cannot do. Our goal is to help you find the best ways to accomplish your objectives and take the guesswork out of planning for the future.

While a will and/or a trust do not necessarily ensure probate avoidance for your family, they may help. Our law firm will help you create a comprehensive estate plan, using all appropriate legal methods to achieve your objectives.
