Estate Planning Services We Offer in Stillwater
Our Stillwater estate planning team assist you with all of the following:
Trusts & Wills
With a last will and testament or revocable living trust, you can specify who will receive your property after you pass away. With a will, you can also name a guardian to care for any minor children, while the revocable living trust can be used to shield all of your assets from probate. Let us review your situation so we can advise you on how to properly draft wills and trusts to make sure your property is preserved and your loved ones are taken care of after you pass away.
If you deice to include a trust in your estate plan, then you will need to select a person to serve as the trustee. This role carries tremendous responsibility that can be difficult to carry out without experience and time, which is why you should use professional trustee administration services to make sure your trust is managed carefully and honestly. Gossen and Schaller, PLLC can serve as your trustee or lend our years of experience to advise you if you have been named a trustee.
Special Needs Trusts
Do you have a loved one with special needs? Are you worried about their financial security and long-term care, particularly after you die? While there are programs like Supplemental Security Income (SSI), these government benefits are means-tested and often don’t award enough to cover all of a person’s medical costs and living expenses. Our lawyers help you set up a special needs trust so can protect financial and other types of assets for the beneficiary without jeopardizing means-tested government benefits.
Powers of Attorney
There are different types of powers of attorney you can include in your estate plan to appoint a trusted individual or individuals to make decisions on your behalf in case you become incapacitated. This is an essential legal tool for both those who are young and healthy and those in their senior years because you never know when a sudden injury or illness might render you unable to advocate for yourself. Call today so we can help you draft the right powers of attorney documents for your situation.
After a person passes away, their estate must go through probate. During this process, the heirs of the estate will be contacted, the last will and testament of the deceased is evaluated, and property will be divided amongst beneficiaries. Probate can be a lengthy procedure, especially if the heirs dispute the contents or validity of the will. Gossen and Schaller, PLLC proudly represents clients in all probate-related litigation, so reach out today for legal guidance.
