Formulating Estate Plans And Working Through Probate
Preparing for the future is essential to avoid causing your loved ones – especially your children – unnecessary stress and confusion as they try to fulfill your wishes and manage your affairs. Putting an estate plan in place will provide your family, friends and business associates with clarity and guidance during what will doubtlessly be an overwhelming and difficult time.
As you begin your estate planning, the knowledge of an experienced lawyer can help you negotiate the potential pitfalls and complex legal concepts that may arise throughout the process.
At the Law Office of Melissa A. Maye, we can help you in a variety of estate planning matters, including:
- Wills and trusts
- Pet trusts
- Powers of Attorney
How We Can Help
Everyone’s estate plan is unique. As we formulate your estate plan, we will work directly with you to determine what will best suit your individual needs. Our primary attorney, Melissa Maye, will help dispel any myths surrounding the process and make every effort to ensure that you understand fully what options are available to you. From there, she will help to ensure that your wishes are met and your affairs are handled properly in the future.
Additionally, the Law Office of Melissa A. Maye will help you through difficult and sometimes complicated process of probate. We will work with you to make sure that all of the estate’s bills are paid, the assets are collected, the distributions are properly handled and that your estate is closed as promptly as possible. While creating an estate plan may help you avoid probate, we understand that in some cases probate is unavoidable, and even advisable. This is something we can help you, or your heirs, work through and decide.
