Estate Planning is the preparation and planning of how you want your estate to be handled after your death, including transfer of assets, designation of guardians for minor children, funeral arrangements, and more. With a well-crafted estate plan, you can create a safety net for your family and prepare for the unexpected.
While many think that trusts and estates are reserved for the wealthy, anyone who owns assets will benefit from an estate plan. An estate plan can also do more than shield assets - you can designate guardians for your minor children and even express your wishes for funeral arrangements. At White Law PLLC, we can walk clients through each step of the planning process and deliver comprehensive plans that meet their needs.
If a person residing in the state of Michigan passes away and does not have a will, a court decides the division and allocation of the individual's assets. A will gives loved ones a guide to managing your affairs after your death, including division of property, debt payments, guardianship or conservatorship for minor children, and supervision of probate. White Law PLLC's skilled Okemos attorneys can help you create a comprehensive will tailored to fit your needs as well as effectively execute simple and complex wills.
If you are incapacitated or unable to make important decisions for yourself, business and healthcare power of attorneys are appointed to make decisions for you. The estate planning attorneys at White Law PLLC work with you to identify and prepare these documents in the event that their services might be necessary.
