Documenting Your Wishes With A Will And Estate Planning
Your dedication to your family is evident in the hours you work, the meals you prepare, the encouragement you provide and the advice you share. All of these actions are daily reminders to your loved ones that you are committed to their well-being.
Designing an estate plan may not have an immediate effect on your family’s welfare. However, your diligence in determining how your wishes will be fulfilled as you age and after your passing will benefit your loved ones over the long term. When you commit to designing an estate plan, you help your beneficiaries limit disputes over your health care, assets, property and debt. Your planning today can alleviate their stress tomorrow.
Our estate planning attorneys at Richardson Law LLC have years of experience in writing wills and estates for central Ohio residents. As a result, we can help you streamline this complex procedure and ensure that the document you sign is enforceable.
We understand that you may delay in establishing an estate plan because you are overwhelmed by the tasks you must complete. In failing to create an estate plan, however, you give up your right to determine how your property is divided during the probate process. The state of Ohio distributes your possessions. What your beneficiaries receive is subject to the court’s discretion.
