The Guidance And Information You Need When Preparing Wills, Trusts And Other Estate Planning Instruments

One of the best ways to assert your final wishes and protect your loved ones in the event of your death is to prepare a will or trust. Many clients avoid drafting a will assuming they will get around to it later in life; however, establishing a clear set of instructions for the dissemination of your assets today can bring peace of mind and stability.

At Ashley Miles, P.C., we help individuals and families throughout Georgia prepare their estates, plan for the future and take necessary steps to avoid probate and other complications that may arise after death.

The Legal Resources You Need To Prepare Your Estate

Many people put together a will by writing out their final wishes on a piece of paper and sticking it in a desk drawer. Others go online and print off will templates that they assume cover all the important aspects of their estate.

Although these documents may seem to adequately outline your final directives, the truth is that they often leave significant gaps in outlining your wishes or naming heirs and administrators. It's for these and other reasons that it's important to work with a lawyer experienced in estate planning who can help you draft a comprehensive and valid will.

Trusts Can Help Your Family Avoid The Stress Of Probate

Trusts can be an excellent option for clients who have minor children as heirs. Trusts can also be established so that you can control how your assets are disseminated, such as in a spendthrift trust. There are many options available to clients who want their assets to be distributed a certain way or who are interested in asset preservation. Attorney Miles can help you explore all your estate planning options in order to establish the best plan for you and your loved ones.
