We offer assistance with two aspects of estate law – estate planning and estate administration.
There are two aspects of estate law that families in King, North Carolina will need legal representation for at one point or another – estate planning and handling the estate of a decedent. At Bennett Guthrie PLLC, our main focus is on probate and estate administration because we understand that losing a loved one is an emotional time. It is important to follow estate law for the distribution of their personal assets, but most people do not have a background in North Carolina estate law and struggle with taking on this task while grieving.
We also understand that you may not want to put added stress on your family by not leaving behind the proper legal documents so they can smoothly handle your estate and honor your wishes after your passing. If you do not establish a comprehensive estate plan utilizing our estate law experience, your assets will be distributed according to intestate succession laws rather than what you might have wanted or what your loved ones really need.
We can assist you with developing an estate plan by preparing your will and other documents that fit your situation, such as trust formulation, financial powers of attorney, and healthcare powers of attorney. While some documents are necessary for after your death, others are important for handling financial and medical decisions if you are unable to.
If you would like to discuss estate law and how it applies to your situation, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. You’ll get personalized service that guides you through setting up an estate or handling estate administration for a loved one that has passed. Call today to learn more.
