For many clients, a last will and testament is just the starting point. If you already have this document in place, you may need to regularly update it as life progresses and changes inevitably come. If you don't have documentation establishing a power of attorney in the event of your incapacitation, or if you don't have a plan laid out for how to cover the costs of your future long-term care, then our elder law attorney can help you make sure those documents are drafted and tailored to your unique needs and goals. If you want to avoid probate or want pass down property on specific terms to your beneficiaries, we can help you set up the right type of trusts to meet your estate planning goals.

Make no mistake, it's important to have a will in place. This is especially critical if you have any children under the age of 18. With even a simple will, you can name someone to entrust your minor kids to if you pass away, name beneficiaries and organizations to pass on your property to, and name an executor to make sure the terms you list out are followed.
However, not all property can be passed down to beneficiaries through just a will. Certain assets must be placed in the right type of trust, and certain funds, such as those in a retirement plan, cannot be passed down through a will. You also can't count on a will being found in time to give your funeral and/or burial instructions. If you have a child or other dependent with special needs, you should look into setting up a trust that can provide the funding needed for their long-term care, without disqualifying your loved one from government benefits.
For issues of tax liability, probate avoidance, and more, you will need to round out your estate planning portfolio with additional documents. Whether it's naming someone to handle your finances and/or healthcare decisions if you become incapacitated, or attaching strings on the assets you pass down, we can help you find the legal solution you need and ensure that the documents involved are legally sound, something that any Ohio court would uphold and ensure is carried out.
