Helping With Your Estate Planning Needs
The process of determining what will happen to your property after you pass away is called “estate planning.” There are many different things to consider when starting your estate planning. First, to whom do you want to leave your property? Are there any charities you want to assist with a special bequest? How can you minimize the tax liability your heirs will face?
It is important that you consider these questions well in advance and answer them through a will, trust, or other legal documents and mechanisms. If you die without a will (called “dying intestate”), the laws of the Ohio (or whatever state you reside in and own property in at the time of your death) will make these decisions for you. The laws won’t necessarily ensure that family members with special needs are cared for or that your favorite charities are remembered. They certainly won’t help you to minimize your heirs’ tax liability.
That is why Green Haines Sgambati is here to help. We are some of the best lawyers in the area when it comes to estate planning. Our free consultation lawyers are happy to sit down with you and listen to your goals. Then we can come up with an estate plan that will help you to ensure that the legacy you worked so hard to build lives on even after you are gone.
Helping with Probate
Estate planning is the first phase of the process. The second phase comes after the person planning the estate has passed away. This is when the person’s last debts are paid and their remaining property is distributed to their heirs. Sometimes the courts will get involved in a process called probate.
Our wills & probate attorney can help with this part of the process as well. We will work closely with the executor of your estate and your heirs to ensure that your property is distributed according to your wishes. We will do what we can to get your estate through probate quickly. Sometimes, we can even manage to avoid probate entirely during the estate planning process. Rest assured that we will always have the best interests of your heirs and your legacy in mind, so you never have to worry.
