Provisions for Guardianship
Sometimes, the distribution of assets is not the most important concern for those seeking a comprehensive estate plan. Many times, the care of minor children and dependent adult children is at the forefront of the priorities for an estate plan. If you pass on before your children are of age, we can help ensure that they will be provided for. We can make provisions for their future. We help you arrange the appointment of a guardian. We can also establish a trust in your children's name, such as a minor trust, revocable living trust, or special needs trust—whichever bests suits your needs and the needs of your family. We work diligently to ensure that the arrangements we make provide a stable future for your family.
Is your current estate plan adequate?
Do you currently have an estate plan? Has it been updated recently to include changes in the law - marriage, family size, health, or wealth? Your estate plan should change as your life changes. Our estate planning attorneys will review current estate plans to determine where they can be enhanced or altered to fit your current situation in life.
