Wills & Estates
TRUSTS, WILLS AND ESTATES
No person should be without a will. If you die (and we are all going to die) without a will, you leave the decisions regarding your estate, including your children and your property, to the laws of the State of New Jersey. You need to be in control of those decisions. The State of NJ should not be in the positions of deciding where you property goes, who watches your children, and all of the other issues related to your estate. Our law firm has over 34 years of experience in drafting Wills for families. We make sure that all of the person’s property, both real and personal, is disposed of. We make sure that the children are taken care of through a Guardianship and through Trust.
We are also able to handle the sensitive area of second marriages. Many families do not know what to do with their assets when there is a second marriage. They want to take care of their surviving spouse, however they also want to make sure that their children are provided for after their spouse dies. We have ways of dealing with those issues that protects every body’s interest.
As part of our areas of practice, we also strongly suggest that an individual have a Living Will. The purpose of the Living Will is to provide for a medical guardian, in the event that you are unable to make medical decisions for yourself. A living will also is your declaration that you do not want artificial means of life support. Our law firm works with you to make sure that the language is satisfactorily to your needs.
Power of Attorney:
Power of Attorney is the power that a living person gives to an individual to act on their behalf. We are experts on drafting those Powers of Attorney. The power can either be general, for all of the person’s needs or for a specific need. Call us for a free consultation to discuss those needs.
When a loved one dies, our firm can help you navigate through the very difficult times. There are many legal requirements, technical and procedural things that must be done to finalize the deceased affairs. We can help you through the probate process, including the probating of the Will, the setting up of any trust, that sale of the assets and the carrying out of the wishes of the deceased person.
