Preparing For Your Future — And Your Family’s
Estate planning is a way of preparing yourself and your loved ones for difficult changes in the future. An experienced estate planning lawyer can help you make things easier for your loved ones while protecting you, your property and your long-term goals.
At Wermerskirchen Law Office, P.A., we help people develop plans that will legally carry out their wishes and desires related to their property. We work with issues, including:
- Tax planning
- Disability planning
- Health care directives
- Power of attorney
- Retirement accounts
- Wealth planning
- Nursing home payment plan options
At our Willmar, Minnesota, office, we represent clients from all walks of life — young, old, wealthy or those just starting out. Many of our clients say that developing a plan leaves them with peace of mind, as they know their loved ones will be cared for with a plan in place as opposed to having an unexpected result forced on them.
Basic Or Advanced Planning
All kinds of families can benefit from estate planning, and everyone should have some type of plan, but not every plan is the same. A basic plan would include a will, a power of attorney and an health care directive, while a more advanced plan might involve trusts and tools to avoid probate, addressing how to pay for long term care if needed.
When you come to us for help with estate planning, we take the time to talk with you and learn about your goals, so that we can develop a plan that meets your needs.
Skilled Help In Probate
Probate is the legal process by which a court administers an estate with assets solely owned by an individual and distributes those assets to the person’s heirs and loved ones. A will provides a type of roadmap, telling an appointed representative and the court how to distribute the estate. Moving an estate through probate can be avoided in many cases through proper planning. It is important to have help from an experienced attorney when probate is required.
