Need help with estate planning?
Estate planning serves an important purpose from both a legal and emotional perspective. Whether you are writing your own will and planning your own estate or doing so for a loved one, you know the importance of laying out final wishes explicitly. Improperly handled wills and estates can create a legal quagmire for next of kin, during an already stressful time. To ensure the wills and estate planning process goes smoothly, many people contact a wills and estate planning attorney. Under the umbrella of wills and estate planning, the estates and elder law attorneys of Mooney & Associates we handle:
- Planning a will
- Planning an estate
- Power of attorney
- Living wills
- Nursing homes
Many people associate estate planning with large costs and even bigger hassles. They believe that the smart thing to do is avoid it altogether. Contrary to that, the probate of most estates runs smoothly. The court supervision ensures that the outstanding debts, taxes and claims against you are paid and that your remaining assets are divided among your heirs. When you or a loved one dies with a will, the court makes its decisions using your will as a guide. When you die without a will the court and the state make crucial decisions for you. Many clients partner with our experienced attorneys for the peace-of-mind that legal requirements are met and that their legacy will transition exactly as they envisioned.
