Estate Planning Lawyer In Indianapolis
Estate planning is an important task. At Tuohy Bailey & Moore LLP, we provide assistance with estate planning documents of all types and guidance to clients navigating the probate process.
Wills And Trusts
Wills and trusts are effective tools for asset protection. A will is a document that allows an individual to determine how his or her assets should be distributed upon death. Trusts are useful for safeguarding assets and, in many cases, avoiding probate.
When a person dies without a will or trust, his or her assets are placed into what is known as intestate secession. Without solid estate planning documents, confusion over distribution of the decedent’s assets can arise between family members, leading to costly disputes. Estate planning is an important step for protecting your family as well as your assets.
Though anyone can benefit from estate planning, everyone’s needs and goals are different. Our attorneys work closely with clients to determine which estate planning tools provide the most effective solutions for their unique needs.
When a loved one dies, the probate process can seem like an unpleasant task. In most cases, however, probate is necessary. There are many steps to the probate process. Our lawyers are committed to completing those steps efficiently, so that assets can pass to beneficiaries as quickly as possible.
