Plan For The Unexpected Today

It isn't always easy to think about planning ahead for a time when you are not around to care for your family. However, it is important to know that taking the initiative early and securing your estate matters with help from an attorney will undoubtedly eliminate a great deal of stress and hardship for your loved ones after your passing.

At the Law Offices of Nickolas Daniels and Associates, we will help craft a will, trust and estate plan that fully meet your needs. We are very thorough in our approach and in explaining options for building an effective estate plan as we discuss the benefits and potential drawbacks of pursuing different strategies.

What Happens If I Die Without A Will?

Most people don't realize that they should have a comprehensive estate plan in place before they die — not just a will. To stay out of probate court, you need a trust. Without a trust, your loved ones will need to go to court, before a judge, to probate and administer your estate. If you have minor children, you will also want to be sure that guardianship is set up. All this will help eliminate challenges with the probate process.

If you die intestate, your heirs will have to handle your estate in court. If there are any conflicts, the process could be costly and emotionally challenging. Having a will, trust and estate plan in place before your passing will ensure your family's privacy and save on costly legal fees.
