Estate Law is often considered the way in which we deal with after the passing of a loved one. However, estate law covers several different situations, most importantly, thinking about the future and preparing a plan, within the appropriate legal framework, while you or your loved one are still in good health. Estate law provides the context and guideline on how to handle disbursement of assets and arranging for appropriate care-giving as one grows older.
Estate Law is about using the correct framework to prepare a plan.
When we assist you with Estate Planning, we meet to review your needs and assets and do a comprehensive review with you in order to identify your specific needs concerning the preparation of your Wills and Powers of Attorney. When we complete your Estate Plan, you can be confident that you have properly planned for your future, regardless of what the future holds.
In addition, Rapos Law will counsel you or your family with the complicated and sensitive circumstance of Estate Administration when a loved one passes away and you are left to administer the Estate of the deceased. We have the experience to assist you in navigating through all the questions that arise regarding Executor’s, assets, finances and taxes.
Finally, sometimes the passing of a loved one does not go in accordance with the Estate Plan or the Estate Administration is complicated by individuals who disagree or refuse to cooperate with the Estate. That is when the possibility of Estate Litigation becomes a potential option.
