WHAT IS AN ESTATE?

In the eyes of the law, everyone has a net worth, which is commonly referred to as an estate. This includes your bank accounts, your home, your car, and any smaller assets you have in your name. If you have any copyrights, trademarks, or businesses in your name, these are also included in your estate. However, everything you owe is also included in your estate, including your mortgage and any debts.

Having a plan for your estate and covering any debts is essential if you want to leave anything for your beneficiaries after your death. The team of estate attorneys at Modesitt Law Firm can help prepare your estate and ensure your plan is in writing before the unexpected occurs. We’ll even draw up your will, and you can make changes at any time.

WHO NEEDS ESTATE PLANNING?

Everyone. If you’re single with no children or family, estate planning allows you to determine your final wishes. If you have a family and suddenly become disabled or die, your plan will be implemented by your estate attorneys.

PREPARE YOUR ESTATE

Preparing for the unexpected is just part of life, and we strongly encourage everyone to establish a plan in the event of being unable to care for themselves or their family. Whether it’s due to a disability or death, pre-planning how your estate is to be distributed will ensure that your family is taken care of and assets are handled correctly. Modesitt Law Firm’s experienced attorneys can assist you with the legal documents needed and will help guide you through every decision concerning your estate.
