Estate Planning Attorney in Fredericksburg
Wills and trusts are tools that can help you accomplish several important testamentary goals. They can tell your executor or trustee how to provide for your loved ones after your death and enable you to avoid unnecessary family conflicts in the future. Related documents such as advanced medical directives and durable powers of attorney can help you specify and legally solidify your wishes regarding health care and other issues. If you are divorced or going through a divorce, updating your will is extremely important, particularly if you have children.
Well-written wills and other testamentary documents allow you to detail what will happen to your money and property, who will take care of your children, and who will be in charge of handling your affairs.
We can help you cover your bases in the following ways:
- Naming your executor and trustee
- Making specific gifts of property to loved ones
- Making residuary or remainder gifts
- Creating simple trusts for beneficiaries under a certain age that last until they meet a specified age
- Including important adoption, guardianship, and conservatorship provisions in a will to ensure your loved ones are properly cared for in the event of your death
- Appointing agents for other property
- Setting up charitable donations
- Advanced medical directives and durable powers of attorney
