Estate planning is for the benefit of your loved ones and your state of mind. Without a good estate plan, your property is distributed after death according to Kansas statutes rather than your preferences. This can leave your family with financial shortcomings or your assets vulnerable to creditors.
Erker Law Firm creates estate plans that reflect your wishes and financial situation. No two clients are alike in this area and we examine your property, concerns, and desires so your estate plan balances all of your goals effectively. Trusts and wills provide documentation to your plans while guardianship and probate are court processes you want managed by a skilled legal professional.
The Whole Picture
There are many estate planning options for you depending on the state of your family, value of your estate and your wishes as to how it passes. Some people only require a will to assure their property passes correctly in probate while others might need a trust to exercise greater control over their assets.
We do not take a one-size-fits-all to estate planning. Every consultation focuses on your situation to customize your plan in order to make sure your expectations are met.
All About Options
In your estate planning session, we may discuss the following planning tools that can be updated as your needs change and develop:
- Guardianship proceedings
- Probate process
- Advanced Healthcare Directives
- Powers of Attorney
