Legal Document Preparation

DID YOU KNOW . . .

  • One out of every two Americans will suffer a period of prolonged disability in his or her lifetime.

  • There is a need for pre-crisis planning and for getting your legal documents signed and in place.

  • The alternative if you do not have your legal documents completed will be for your family to ask the court to appoint a guardian and/or conservator for you. Such procedures may be cumbersome, time-consuming and expensive.

Having your paperwork in order

Living Trust

  • A trust is a written agreement that sets forth who will manage the assets place in it during your lifetime, in the event of your incapacity, and upon your death.

  • Avoids the cost and delays of probate.  Upon your death (and your spouse, if married), your Successor Trustee can distribute the assets almost immediately and with little or no additional expense (other than typical costs such as real estate commissions, etc.)  Court supervision is not required.

  • Avoids conservatorship if you become incapacitated.

  • Keeps your estate affairs private.  A Will that goes through probate makes all aspects of your estate a matter of public record.
