Wealth Management & Estates General
Inheritance comes with temptations. If you are the beneficiary of a trust or an inheritance it’s very important to take a step back and examine the long-term financial strategy for you and/or your family.
Additionally, if you are in the process of developing an inheritance for your estate, developing the proper documentation and contingencies is also very important. This will help to alleviate any contention during the dispersion period.
Without a will in place, your wealth and assets are left up to the Government to disperse. This can lead to an incredible amount of animosity between the siblings and family as they feud over the inheritance.
Smart will development can help identify many specific areas of the asset distribution. From limiting tax deferrals to establishing trusts and identifying the receiving parties.
Our Estate Will services, also cover the interpretation and distribution of assets ‘after the fact’.
Litigation during an estate distribution process is unfortunately very common. One party feels they were misrepresented in the will and so they initiate litigation against the other party and so the courts become involved in order to resolve the dispute.
