Estate Planning Issues

A comprehensive estate plan will not only address what happens after your death, but it can also protect your assets and ensure that your needs will be met throughout your life. We are prepared to assist you with a wide variety of estate planning issues, including:

  • Wills - A last will and testament is a foundational part of your estate plan, ensuring that your last wishes will be carried out correctly and specifying how your assets and belongings will be distributed to your heirs. In your will, you can also nominate a person to serve as the guardian of your minor children after your death.
  • Trusts - In addition to your will, various types of trusts can provide you with a more flexible way to control your assets and pass them on to your beneficiaries. Trusts may also be used to provide for your own needs later in your life, and special needs trusts can provide financial assistance for loved ones or for yourself without affecting eligibility for public aid.
  • Powers of Attorney - To help ensure that your wishes are carried out correctly while avoiding the need for court involvement through guardianship, you can name a person who has the authority to make decisions about your finances or healthcare if you become incapacitated. Other types of advance directives may also be used to communicate decisions about the medical treatment you do or do not want to receive in certain situations. 
  • Guardianship - If an adult friend or family member is unable to meet some or all of their own needs, you may wish to explore guardianship, conservatorship, protective services, or other alternatives to protect their interests and well-being.
  • Legacy Planning and Protection - You can take steps to ensure that you will be able to pass the assets you own to your beneficiaries, including any charitable organizations. In addition to creating a will and/or trust, we can help you understand your options for creating payable on death or transfer on death accounts or assets.

Elder Law Concerns

In addition to the estate planning issues discussed above, those who are reaching their twilight years should also be aware of how certain elder law issues will affect their ability to make decisions for themselves. Concerns about financial exploitation may arise, and additional legal considerations may come into play.

At Frozena Law LLC, we will help you address these issues and help ensure that you understand your rights. We can help alleviate your worries about the future and work with you to  determine how decisions about your healthcare and finances will be handled, providing you with peace of mind that your needs will be met throughout the rest of your life.
