Estate Planning Attorneys Serving Rock Springs And Green River
Creating a simple estate plan is a good way to make sure that your wishes are carried out in the event of your death or serious illness. People who have an estate plan in place often feel relieved. They know that their loved ones will not be burdened with the difficult decisions and expenses often associated with not having a plan in place.
Because we work so closely with our clients, because we take the time to really listen, we really get to know them and their families. We draw on this knowledge to guide them through the estate planning process, helping them create a plan that best suits their needs.
A good estate plan is more than just a will or trust. It can include a wide range of documents that all serve different functions:
- Guardianships and conservatorships: These documents appoint a guardian or a conservator to oversee personal affairs or finances in the event of health problems or other significant need.
- Living wills: Living wills provide advance directives for medical decisions, like terminal illness or permanent unconsciousness. They are in place just in case you are unable to communicate your preferences yourself.
- Powers of attorney: These documents allow you to appoint someone to make important legal and financial decisions on your behalf.
- Trusts: A trust is a way to give the benefits of cash or property ownership to a person, with those benefits managed by a trustee.
- Wills: Wills designate how your real property and assets should be managed in the event that you pass away.
Our Rock Springs estate planning lawyers also represent people in matters of guardianship, helping them take care of others they care about.
