Prepare for the future and your family’s future with estate law planning.
Contrary to common belief, estate law services are not reserved for those people with a portfolio of hundreds of thousands of dollars or more. If you have assets that you want distributed in a certain way, you need an estate plan. At Bennett Guthrie PLLC, we assist our clients with developing and changing estate documents so they can be confident their wishes will be honored.
Most people thing of estate law and how it pertains to their last will and testament. However, we help you put together a full package of necessary documents that cover times when you are still alive but unable to voice your intentions. For example, a health care power of attorney appoints a trusted person with the task of your medical care if you cannot make the decisions yourself. A financial power of attorney does the same for your financial affairs and can be customized to give select powers so that your financial matters are tended to if you cannot handle them.
Forming trusts is another estate law process that can be utilized. It can be an ideal option for minor children or others you wouldn’t want to get the full amount of their inheritance at once. There are several types of trusts that we are happy to explain to you when setting up your estate documents.
