Handling Estate Planning Matter for Clients in and around Medina

Too many people believe that estate planning is not necessary unless you are older, ill, or particularly wealthy. However, in reality, every adult can benefit from having an effective estate plan. Whether you need a relatively straightforward plan or a complex combination of estate planning instruments, you should discuss your options with an experienced Medina estate planning lawyer. Contact our legal team at Niekamp Weisensell Mutersbaugh & Mastrantonio, LLP to learn more today.  

Components of a Comprehensive Estate Plan

Each estate plan should be carefully tailored to your specific situation, including the nature of your estate, the identity of your beneficiaries, and more. In addition, estate plans should address the management of your affairs should you become incapacitated as well as how your property is distributed after your death. 

Our lawyers will examine which estate planning tools might be right for you and your family, and such tools may include: 

  • Last will and testament
  • Living trust
  • Living will
  • Special needs trust
  • Financial power of attorney
  • Healthcare power of attorney
  • Advance directive
  • Asset protection tools
  • Wealth transfers
  • Medicaid planning
  • Other long-term care planning
  • Business succession

Some estate plans are more complicated than others. Estate plans involving high-value assets, business ownership, or individuals with special needs can require additional components. Our attorneys can create and update even the most complex plans to ensure that you, your property, and your family are protected.

Additional Estate Planning Services

In addition to drafting wills, creating trusts, and designating powers of attorney, our lawyers handle additional estate planning matters, such as:

  • Guardianship – If someone becomes incapable of caring for themselves, the court can designate a guardian to make decisions and handle their affairs. Guardianship cases can get complicated if someone tries to contest the guardianship, and all parties involved should seek legal representation.
  • Estate administration – When someone passes away, their estate must go through the probate process, as well as trust administration. Executors of wills and trustees have important tasks to complete, as well as a fiduciary duty to all beneficiaries. It is often helpful to have the advice and assistance of a knowledgeable estate administration attorney.
  • Estate plan amendments – Once you have an estate plan in place, it is important to regularly revisit the plan to determine whether any changes are necessary. You should also review and update your plan after major life events, including marriage, divorce, the birth of a child, the death of a beneficiary, changes to your estate, and more.

Estate planning is important for everyone of any age and health status. Having an estate plan protects your well-being should you become incapacitated, and it makes it easier for your family members should you pass away.
