Estate planning can be an overwhelming undertaking for anyone, but few realize that it is an essential process for all adults to complete. At Hartmann Law, I want to help you take control of your future and that of your family or any beneficiaries. No matter your age, you can rest easily knowing your estate and your loved ones are cared for when you have taken the time to plan your estate. Measures I can assist with include:
When a loved one dies, the relatives of the decedent will usually be involved in probating the decedent’s will or asking the court to have an administrator of the estate named if there is no will. A personal representative of the estate is appointed by the court in the county where the deceased last resided. The personal representative is responsible for collecting the assets of the estate, paying the debts, and distributing the remaining assets to the beneficiaries or the heirs. The personal representative is called the executor if there is a will, or the administrator if there is no will.
In addition to setting up and organizing your estate correctly, Hartmann Law can see your will through the probate process and handle other related-issues, including will contests and the appointment of executors.
Estate planning is a powerful proactive measure for newlywed couples, same sex couples and new parents, alike, to get their affairs in order should the unthinkable occur. With the help of Hartmann Law, your wishes will be properly documented, securing the future of your family.
I proudly offer estate planning discounts to police officers and public school teachers.
