Probate Attorney in Sanford, NC
Covering your legal bases now, when you are able to do so, will put your own mind at ease and guarantee that when you are gone, your children and heirs will not have to do it for you. There are several things you should do.
Wills document your wishes in the distribution of your property and assets. You should take some time and decide on how you wish it to be distributed. Write it down along with any questions that you might have. This document will be used by your attorney to make the formal, legal document that will be your will.
Trusts can be used when you wish to avoid probate. A trust is an excellent way to manage assets and property while you are living, that will then be more easily passed to your heirs.
Real Estate that is unaccounted for in a trust will normally have to go through probate. This will add a great deal of time and usually significant expense to the inheritance you are leaving your children and heirs. There are other ways to pass real estate to your children or heirs that can avoid this process.
If you need legal assistance regarding your estate planning matters, you can trust Attorney Woods Doster for your most important estate planning, wills and trusts, probate, real estate, and loan closing issues.
