What You Need To Know About Estate Planning

While it can be difficult to think about life after death, it’s necessary. The right estate plan will protect all of your assets and allow your family time to grieve without legal headaches. Jeckering & Associates, LLC, has helped clients throughout Ohio understand this process. In order to avoid problems down the road, it is important to have this done correctly.

Detailed Estate Planning Every Step Of The Way

When it comes to estate planning, the first step you should take is creating a will. This is where you can list out your assets and clearly state who they should go to. Trusts are also useful tools that can be created depending on your needs. Without a will in place, your loved ones will be forced to make decisions on your behalf. In order to avoid that, it is best to create a plan as soon as you can. It’s important to remember that you can always update your will should you change your mind or acquire new assets.

Strong Probate Support When You Need It

Probate is another part of the process that can be quite complicated. After a loved one passes away, their estate plan must go through probate. This is where the court makes sure that a will is valid. It is also the time where the executor of the will pays off remaining debts and distributes any and all assets to the rightful heirs. This process can often be time-consuming and confusing. Our attorneys are here to help move it along and get things done the right way.
