Helping You And Your Family Plan For The Future
At Sharon N. Bogarad, Attorney at Law, we understand that thinking about the future can be hard. We know that you may not want to think about what would happen to your family should you pass away unexpectedly. However, planning for the future is an important item that is often overlooked by many people, placing their families at risk.
We have found that people will often make three wills in their lifetimes: One when they have children, one when they have grandchildren and one when the first spouse passes away. You do not have to wait for any of these events to happen before you make a will. Wills are not something that require you to reach a certain age or status before you take action.
Our attorney will examine your assets and help you devise a will that allows you to ensure your property is passed along to your loved ones. Sharon has over three decades of experience with these issues. She will carefully explain all of the options to you, so that you understand the possible tax consequences that may result, if applicable in your state. She will prepare all of the necessary paperwork and make sure the wills are filed properly so that your family will have no issues when they need to carry out your final wishes.
Sharon will also prepare any advance directives that you will require. These documents include living wills, powers of attorney and medical directives. This will allow you to specify the type of care that you should receive in the event that you become incapacitated or unable to make decisions on your own.
We also focus on probate issues as part of our practice. Each state has different laws concerning probate, so it is important that you work with a lawyer who knows how this can impact your specific situation. We will work with you and your family to find a prompt resolution to probate.
