Estate Planning & Estate Administration
Attending to your Goals and Preserving your family’s wealth for future generations!
Whether you’re planning the parameters of your future medical care or establishing support for loved ones upon your death, the attorneys at Glynn Law Offices can help with all aspects of trust and estate issues, including:
Securing your legacy
We know you work hard for your family and continued growth of your assets, so knowing that you have helped them with financial security can certainly bring you comfort. We thoroughly analyze your holdings and strategize the best means estate plan to meet your goals, whether that be transferring your assets, minimizing taxes, avoiding probate and estate administration, establishing guardianship for your children and securing a financial safety net for them, caring for your pets, or supporting philanthropic causes.
Draft your Last Will and Testament
A Will is essential at every stage of your life. Your living will sets the parameters for medical intervention should you become incapacitated. This ensures that when you are most vulnerable, your wishes will be honored.
Your last will provides the opportunity to distribute your property, establish care for your children and otherwise express your wishes upon your death. A will is necessary if you intend to leave property to somebody besides a blood relative, such as a domestic partner, a friend or a charity. If you die without a will, the court determines how your property is distributed, who cares for your children and even what happens to your beloved pet — making decisions that might not reflect your desires. Glynn Law Offices can draft a valid will that ensures your intentions are honored.
Changing your will
As your life changes, so might your estate plan. You may need to update your will throughout your life. Glynn Law Offices drafts valid codicils that address changes in your financial situation, marital status, number of children, philanthropic interests and general lifestyle decisions.
Appointment of guardianship
If you have minor children, your will allows you to make decisions about their future care. This is especially crucial if you are a single parent or if both parents die in a common incident. If you do not name a guardian, the court will appoint a guardian for your children and can make decisions adverse to your ultimate parenting goals. You can also make arrangements for your pets’ care in your will, including naming a guardian to take responsibility for your pets.
