Estate Planning Helps You Prepare For The Future
The kindest thing you can do for your family is to start preparing for tomorrow by preparing a will today.
At the law firm of Herring, Long & Crews, P.C., we have seen far too many people who die intestate, meaning they have not created a document that prescribes what will become of their assets when they die. By planning ahead, you can save your family from complex legal questions in the midst of their grief. Located in Canton, our estate planning lawyers look forward to hearing from you.
Ensuring Your Wishes Are Respected
Not creating an estate plan can be a terrible burden on the loved ones left behind. If a person does not create a will, the distribution of a person’s estate depends on what state law outlines. If assets are not in the proper name or beneficiaries are not properly identified, any money that may be left over for a family member could be lost.
The lawyers at Herring, Long & Crews, P.C., know that talking and planning for one’s own death can be difficult – so much so that it is easy to put off the task. But, we also know that you want your loved ones cared for after your passing.
We can easily and quickly help you create end-of-life documents that will ensure your family’s well-being. These documents include:
- Powers of attorney
- Advance health care directives
- Guardianships and conservatorships
In addition to helping you create a will, we can help you prepare one that keeps much of your estate out of the probate courts – thereby ensuring your privacy, as well as saving your family the added court costs. We can also help you update existing estate plans when you encounter family law matters such as divorce or remarriage.
Get Help Taking Care Of The Next Generation
We will help you transfer your assets to the next generation as easily and efficiently as possible after you are gone. Not only does it ease the emotional burden on your family, it also guarantees that your wishes are respected.
