What makes a trust a preferable option for estate planning?

Arrow icon

Trusts afford a high degree of privacy, allow you to avoid probate, and provide detailed control over asset distribution. As such, they’re ideal for managing complex family situations and minimizing taxes.

Can I amend my estate plan once it’s established?

Arrow icon

Yes. Estate plans can and should be reviewed and updated to reflect significant life events like marriage, divorce, the birth of a child, or a substantial change in assets.

What role does an attorney play in probate proceedings?

Arrow icon

A skilled attorney can take the lead in the probate process, representing your estate's interests, resolving disputes, and ensuring the efficient distribution of assets according to your wishes.

Why is it important to have an advance healthcare directive in Bigfork?

Arrow icon

An advance healthcare directive makes your healthcare preferences known and guarantees that they’ll be carried out according to your wishes, particularly in situations where you may not be able to communicate them yourself.
