Your Estate Planning Attorney In Cumming, GA
Planning for what will happen after you pass away is not always an easy thing to do. It is difficult to predict what will happen in the future, and it can often seem easier to not think about it rather than dwell on it. But failing to consider such questions legally can have negative consequences, especially if you have assets that you want to pass on to your loved ones. Without a will your assets could be in control of the courts once you die, to be distributed as the judge sees fit. If you are like most people, you would prefer to dictate what happens to the things that you worked so hard to earn.
At O’Driscoll Keller Law Group, LLC, we provide a range of estate planning services that can help you effectively plan for whatever may happen. We can make sure that your last wishes are honored, and protect your assets and your loved ones from excessive expenses, probate and taxation in the process.
Wills, Trusts, POAs And More
There are a range of legal and financial tools available that will allow you to protect what is yours. With a will, you can specify to whom all of your assets and possessions will go, as well as who will be responsible for distributing those assets. Even if you do not have a lot to pass on, with a simple will you can provide clear directions for your loved ones after you die, helping them to avoid confusion and disagreements over your last wishes.
A wide variety of trusts are available that can help you pass on your assets while avoiding costly probate and estate taxes. You can also create a power of attorney (POA) so someone you trust can make decisions for you – both financially and related to healthcare – should you be unable to do so because of accident or illness.
