Create a Will
A will is a legal document that dictates what happens to your assets. If you die before your children are 18 years old, it will also determine who will raise your kids. At Bellomo & Associates, LLC, we help you establish a clear set of instructions on distributing your belongings.
If you haven’t already made a will, it can help you:
- Avoid the probate process
- Reduce estate taxes
- Make donations and gifts
- Mitigate legal disputes
- Plan for changes in circumstance
- Disinherit certain individuals
A will shares many similarities with a trust. The difference between the two is when they kick into action. A will goes into effect when you die, while a trust impacts your financial future immediately. An estate planning attorney from Bellomo & Associates, LLC can help you decide which option best serves your needs.
We are here to guide you through all aspects of the legal process. Whether that means preparing for the probate or appointing an executor, we take care of the details. All you have to do is kick back and enjoy your time with your loved ones.
Establish a Living Trust
Trusts are slightly more complicated to set up than wills but still serve a practical purpose. A well-crafted trust minimizes your estate taxes and keeps your belongings private. It’s also useful if you want to maintain some flexibility in your estate planning.
Our attorneys have the experience and skills to set up a trust that meets your specific needs. We ensure that you don’t go through the probate process, which lets you expedite property distribution into the trust. We can also update your living trust without oversight from the court in case of poor financial management or an unstable relationship.
A trust may only be the start of your estate planning. At Bellomo & Associates, LLC, we also offer Medicaid crisis planning, asset protection planning, and elder law counsel. Check out our complete lineup of services to learn more.
