Estate Planning Lawyers Avon

Estate Planning Lawyers Avon

Estate plans are becoming more important and complicated than ever before. While it used to be that a simple will was sufficient for even the largest estates, today it is more common for estate planning attorneys to use other legal vehicles like trusts. While it is still necessary to have a will, the trust manages asset distribution far more efficiently than a typical will. The Avon, Ohio estate planning attorneys at Kryszak Law Firm, Co., LLP can help you ensure that your family’s needs are met in the event of your passing.

Types of services we provide

Your estate planning attorney’s job is to set up a comprehensive estate plan that is adapted specifically to your needs. This means setting up any of the four core estate planning documents. These include:

  • Last will and testament – Even with advanced estate planning vehicles like trusts, you still need a will. Wills need not be complex, but they must be notarized and have witnesses. Otherwise, the will can be contested in court and if the court throws out the will, then the probate court will apply an algorithm that distributes your assets to your heirs. It is something you probably want to avoid.
  • Durable power of attorney – DPOA means that if you become incapacitated at any point, you can assign someone the power to make financial decisions on your behalf. This person is usually a trusted friend, spouse, or adult child. In some cases, it can also be an institution.
  • Living will – Those who cannot communicate their wishes for health care treatment can establish a living will that directs medical personnel on what interventions they can or cannot employ. This can include decisions on whether or not to resuscitate a patient or offer artificial life support. 
  • Health care power of attorney – You can alternatively allow someone to make decisions on your behalf if you become incapacitated and cannot make those decisions for yourself. A health care proxy cannot countermand your living will, which has the final say. They can only act in accord with what they believe your interests are. 

What is a trust?

A trust is like a legal container for assets. There are many different types of trusts. These trusts can be used for asset distribution purposes when you pass. The major advantage of using a trust is that it avoids probate entirely. That means assets pass directly from the trust to your heirs. Trusts also may have tax benefits or be protected from creditors under certain circumstances. For more information on trusts, please call our office.
