Protecting Your Legacy Through Estate Planning And Probate

A solid estate plan can help take care of your loved ones when you are gone while also looking out for you as you age. Many people have the mistaken belief that you must be extremely wealthy to need an estate plan, but estate planning is for everyone. At Just Scales, PLLC, estate planning attorney Lisa Ledbetter will help you identify the type of planning that is right for you. Common planning tools include:

  • Wills – Whether you are a new parent who needs to identify a guardian for your child or a grandparent facing a critical illness, a will tells the court and your loved ones how you would like your estate handled after you die.
  • Trusts – Trusts come in many forms and can serve many purposes. They can provide for you while you are alive, then disburse after your death, or continue to the next generation. They can help you care for a child or adult with special needs. They are also a great tool for avoiding probate.
  • Powers of attorney – A power of attorney allows you to appoint a trusted person to help you manage your affairs if you become incapacitated and cannot handle them yourself. Without such a document, your loved ones may have to petition for guardianship over you, which can be an expensive legal process.

Attorney Ledbetter is also here for you after the death of a loved one. When you must administer the probate of your loved one’s estate, the court will require you to complete certain steps before you can distribute any assets. Attorney Ledbetter can help you complete those steps properly to avoid delays. She can also help when disputes among family members arise. Her experience and guidance can make the process go smoothly.
