Estate planning

An Estate Plan dictates what happens to your property in the event of your death. While you are alive, you remain in control and have the power to change the Estate Plan at any time.  

 

At Neumann Law our experienced, caring and trusted staff will assist you in formulating an Estate Plan tailored to your personal needs and situations.

What is a will?

A will is a written document, signed and witnessed, that instructs how your property will be disposed at the time of your death. It is revocable and subject to amendment at any time during your lifetime.

What is a living trust?

A living trust provides lifetime and after-death property management. If you are serving as your own trustee, the trust instrument will provide for a successor upon your death or incapacity. Court intervention is not required. Each Estate Plan is as unique as the individual client.  

   Our services include the preparation of:

  • A living trust

  • Last will and testament

  • Durable power of attorney

  • Designation of patient advocate

How is an estate settled?

If the decedent owned property at the time of death, court proceedings may be required. This is typically done in the county in which the decedent resided or owned property. If the decedent did not have a Will, the court will apply a statutory distribution schedule.

At Neumann Law our skill and knowledge of the      nuances of probate law include:

•  Informal probate proceedings

•  Supervised informal probate proceedings

•  Supervised Probate proceedings
