Estate planning is one of the most important things you can do for your family's future, but it can be easy to put off, sometimes until it is too late. The day-to-day demands of life are pressing, and it is often a challenge to make estate planning a priority.
At Ash Street Law, we understand. We are committed to helping you achieve the peace of mind that comes with knowing you've prepared for the future, while minimizing your stress in the present.
One reason that many people put off creating an estate plan is that they are not sure exactly what they need. Attorney Nancy Thome begins the process by asking you about your family, your goals, and your concerns—and really listening to your answers. Based on your needs, she will help you explore your options for transferring your assets, making sure your children and grandchildren are cared for, and that you have a plan in place for addressing your own needs in the event of incapacity.
Ash Street Law is available to help you with a wide range of estate planning services, including:
One of the greatest burdens on a family during a time of loss is to have to try and figure out what their loved one's wishes were. Disagreement about those wishes can lead to conflict and further stress in the family. By taking the time to make an estate plan, you can lift that burden from your family's shoulders and give them peace when they need it most.
Clarity about your wishes isn't just important after you have passed away. In the event you become unable to make medical, personal, or financial decisions for yourself, having in place powers of attorney will ensure that someone you trust is making decisions for you. If you need to assist an incapacitated adult who did not grant powers of attorney, Ash Street Law can help you obtain guardianship so that you have legal authority to address their needs.
