Beard Law assists clients upon the death of a family member in probating wills and carrying out directives in paying estate claims, taxes and bequests to beneficiaries under wills and trusts.
Beard Law will prepare accountings to the court and other necessary court filings in order to make the probate process as clear and smooth as possible so that clients can focus on other important family matters.
Whether you are concerned about who will inherit your property or who will take care of your family in the event of your death, a Will can be prepared which will execute your wishes and alleviate any concerns you have and put your mind at ease. Depending on your situation, it may be recommended that a Trust be implemented to provide for your children, avoid probate or achieve a number of goals you wish to implement.
It is also important to have Health Care and General Power of Attorneys to ensure there is someone to represent your interest should you become incapacitated.
An Advance Directive/Living Will, which will specify your wishes regarding any life-preserving medical treatment, can also be prepared.
There are times when it is necessary for a person to go through a guardianship proceeding because they are incapable of handling his or her own financial or personal affairs or there is a minor in need of a guardian. Beard Law can assist with this proceeding and help clients through the paperwork and hearing.
