Probate & Wills

Arranging end of life plans and sorting through a loved one’s estate is one of the most difficult things you will ever face. Unfortunately, when you avoid these issues, the state intervenes and the situation becomes even more unpleasant. The best thing you can do when it comes to probate and wills is to work with an experienced attorney who understands the sensitive nature of end of life planning.

Estate planning includes the creation of documents and directives that make legal your intentions for your assets after you die. The goal is to transition your estate in the manner in which you choose as seamlessly as possible. Estate planning also allows a person to arrange for care of his or her minor or reliant children.

Once a person dies, his or her estate must be validated and executed, which is done through probate. This can be a complicated process that includes the distribution of assets and payment to creditors. Probate can be straightforward or involve complex claims or contests to a will. If the deceased does not leave a will or name an executor, the process is even more complicated.

To ensure your wishes are carried out as intended and to protect the intentions of your loved ones once you are gone, you need an experienced attorney. Mike Unger can help.
