No one likes thinking about their own mortality, including us, but with Baird Law the process doesn’t have to be unpleasant. A will is an important way to plan for the future; going through the probate process without a valid will is not only costly, but also very time consuming, and gives you no guarantee that your things will go where you wanted them to.
Often times, writing a will can help you make plans to efficiently distribute your wealth by reorganizing your assets to be tax efficient and to minimize your present and future tax liability.
At Baird Law, we strive to make the process as comfortable and pleasant for you as possible. With our combined understanding of tax law and probate law, we can help you create a will that ensures your assets will, go where you want them to without a large tax bill for your heirs.
Even if you already have a will, we recommend that you update it as you acquire sizable assets, such as a house, or after major life changes like marriage, divorce, or the birth or adoption of your children.
We can also help you prepare for the unexpected with powers of attorney or other advance healthcare directives designed to assist your friends and family in answering the difficult questions about what you would like done when it comes to end of life care.
Whether it is to draft your first will, update an existing will, or create powers of attorney, Baird Law is here to help. Contact us today for a free consultation.
