Update Your Estate Plan As Your Life Changes

Estate planning gives you the power to distribute your assets as you wish. Your estate plan allows you to choose the type of medical treatment you want to have in the event you are suddenly incapacitated. If you have children who are minors, you will want to do your utmost to protect them and meet their needs until they are adults. We can help you establish these provisions in your estate plan. If you own a business, your estate plan can include business succession instructions.

Updating your estate plan as your life changes is essential. A birth of a child or grandchild, sale of your home, job or profession changes, new medical circumstances, divorce, death of a spouse, marriage or when your children leave your home are each significant reasons to determine if your current estate plan meets your needs or will need revision. Our attorneys can help you keep your estate plan up to date.

Contested Estate Administration And Probate

The death of a loved one is never easy to manage. Family emotions can be unexpected and range from deep grief, rage or confusion, even if your loved one had a will or a trust. After the memorial service, families frequently struggle with gathering their loved one’s important legal documents for the final closure. Family conflict can get contentious right after a loved one passes or months down the road.

When disputes arise, speak with an experienced probate lawyer as soon as possible to minimize the escalation from a long-drawn-out battle in court. At De Paz Law, we help heirs, beneficiaries, trustees and fiduciaries. Whether you are contesting a will or trust or have a complaint served against you for breach of fiduciary duty, we can assist you. Our trial lawyers are efficient and effective. We also provide advocacy for professionals such as insurance consultants, financial planners and realtors dealing with estate administration or probate.
