Resolving Your Legal Questions

Though often overlooked or ignored in favor of more immediate concerns, an estate plan can resolve a number of legal questions that a family is faced with when a person dies including: What is the state of their financial affairs? What real and personal property do they own? Who gets what? Does a personal guardian need to be appointed to care for minor children? How much tax will need to be paid in order to transfer property ownership? What funeral arrangements are appropriate?

The lawyers at DeSanto Law Firm have the experience necessary to assist you with your estate planning needs. We assist with aspects of estate planning that include:

Wills — A well-prepared will eases the transition for survivors by transferring property quickly and avoiding many tax burdens. Although it is difficult to contemplate mortality, many people find a great peace of mind that results from putting their affairs in order.

Trusts — A trust is an estate-planning tool that can replace or supplement a will, as well as help manage property during life. A trust manages the distribution of an individual's property by transferring its benefits to others. This property distribution technique is a popular choice for many people when creating an estate plan.

Probate — The probate process is court-supervised and is designed to sort out the transfer of a person's property upon death. Property that generally is not subject to the probate process includes life insurance policies, joint and survivorship accounts and "payable on death" bank accounts.
