Offering Many Different Estate Planning Solutions

Wills are an essential piece of the estate planning process. These documents provide specific instructions that govern which loved ones (or beneficiaries) will receive which assets. Wills can also be used to set up future guardianship of minor children or other loved ones who need to be cared for should anything happen to the writer of the will.

When wills are not written in the right way, it is easy for a deceased person's estate to get stuck in a lengthy probate process, which can turn out to be very costly for the surviving family members. Ensuring that a will is properly validated and executed can be a very difficult process.

Our firm provides full guidance for clients who are going through the estate administration process. We help these individuals ensure that the probate court paperwork is filed correctly and the estate is being distributed in accordance with the appropriate guidelines.

Setting up revocable living trusts is an additional way to make sure that heirs get their rightful inheritance. This type of trust allows the grantor the freedom to change or revoke the trust, if needed, during his or her lifetime. You can turn to the Law Offices of Timothy D. Henry for help creating a trust, or for help with trust administration if you have been designated a trustee or an executor.

These are just a few of the many options our clients are given when we help them with estate planning. Others include creating important documents that establish powers of attorney and advance health care directives. These documents help individuals determine who will make decisions on their behalf and what type of medical care (including life support) they want to receive if they ever become incapacitated.
