Helping Families Move Forward After The Loss Of A Loved One
What are your long-term goals for your assets and real property? Do you have someone in mind to handle your affairs if you should suddenly become incapacitated? If you are a parent of young children, who will take care of your children when you are gone? Considering your own mortality or disability is difficult, however planning ahead can save your family or the court from having to make decisions for you in the future.
At Weber, Carrier, Boiczyk & Chace, LLP, we encourage our clients to develop a comprehensive estate plan to fully protect their assets in the event of their disability and provide for their heirs after they pass away. Established in 1968, our firm has helped clients throughout central Connecticut examine their assets and develop effective long-term planning.
Easing Your Family’s Burdens During Their Time Of Loss
Having a will or a trust can ease your family’s burden during their time of loss knowing you clearly established your wishes and intentions ahead of time. If you are a parent with young children, it is important to have an estate plan to nominate your choice of guardian for your children when you pass.
No matter your health, age or financial circumstances, it is important to discuss your estate plan with a knowledgeable attorney. We can guide you through drafting the appropriate estate planning documents, including:
- Living wills
- Health care instructions
- Advance directives
- Powers of attorney
- Special needs trusts
- Living trusts
- Spendthrift trusts
- Pet trusts
Settling Estates With Knowledge And A Passion To Serve Families
When an individual passes, their estate — their financial interests, real property, personal property and outstanding debts — is addressed and settled in probate court. Many families think if their loved one created a will, they do not have to go through probate administration. Whether or not a person had a will upon death, their final affairs are still addressed in probate court.
This makes the process of probate complex and confusing to families. To initiate probate, the court will appoint a personal representative who becomes responsible to gather the deceased’s asset information, notify creditors, pay the final bills and file a final tax return. When this is done, the personal representative then distributes the remaining assets to heirs and beneficiaries.
If your family is dealing with the loss of a loved one, contact Weber, Carrier, Boiczyk & Chace, LLP, for compassionate legal assistance.
