No matter how large or small your estate may be, the greatest gift that you can leave your loved ones is peace of mind. At Eques, our skilled lawyers know that one of the best ways to offer security to your family is by creating a comprehensive, well-designed Life Plan (also called an Estate Plan) customized to meet your specific needs and those of your loved ones. We understand how to use a full range of estate planning tools, including wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and more, to help you give your family the peace of mind they deserve.
Wills are the foundation for most effective estate plans. Also called a last will and testament, a will is a legal document that records your wishes regarding your property, minor children, and many other considerations. Your will should be tailored to address your unique situation and may contain provisions for:
- Appointing an executor for your estate.
- Settling any outstanding obligations and debts.
- Allocating your assets to your heirs and beneficiaries.
- Donating to charitable causes.
- Selecting a guardian for your children.
Our experienced team can assist you in drafting and executing a will that effectively addresses all of your concerns. We will also take every precaution to ensure that your will is sound enough to withstand challenges or contests made during probate.
We understand that the estate planning process can be difficult and that you may have many questions along the way. That is why we take the time to educate you on your available options and provide insight as you make the necessary decisions. If you already have a will or a transfer on death instrument, but it is in need of a review or an update, we can help with that as well. Contact us today to discuss how we can help.
