Who Needs A Will?
Have you thought about how your assets and wealth will be divided in the event you pass away? It’s not something we like to think about, but creating a will is a necessary step if you want your wishes carried through in the face of an uncertain future.
Some people think wills are only for older people with significant wealth, but in fact, nearly everyone can benefit from having a will in place. If you have any assets at all, you probably need a will. If you have minor children, it is advisable to have a will because it allows you to name a trusted person to serve as their guardian in the event tragedy strikes and your children are left parentless.
At Healy & McCann, PC , our attorneys have extensive experience drafting, reviewing and updating wills and other estate planning documents for clients in Albany and throughout Northwest Oregon. We can help you draft wills and other estate planning documents that set your wishes in stone.
The Value Of Trust Creation
Trusts are an integral part of any estate plan and offer a wide range of asset protection benefits. During your lifetime, trusts can help you manage assets and protect your wealth from lawsuits, unnecessary taxes and other liabilities. Upon death, trusts can help ensure a stable transition of wealth and property to your beneficiaries, and even help those you leave behind avoid the probate process.
We can help you explore all of the trust options available to you, including:
- Living trusts
- Revocable trusts
- Irrevocable trusts
- A/B trusts
- Special needs trusts
- Life insurance trusts
Our lawyers have more than 95 years of combined experience handling wills, trusts and other estate planning matters.
