Comprehensive Estate Planning

When many people think about estate planning, they often consider drafting a will to designate what happens to their property after they pass away. While a will is an extremely important part of any estate plan, it is far from the only legal tool you have to design a comprehensive, effective, and enforceable estate plan to protect your family, your property, and yourself.

We can help with the establishment of any aspect of estate planning, including but not limited to the following subjects and documents:

It is important to realize that many of these documents not only plan for after your death but ensure that your best interests are protected during the end of your life.

Estate Planning Administration

Part of an estate plan is designating trusted individuals to administer your estate. This can entail navigating the often tedious and confusing process of probate, which includes many duties and responsibilities for the chosen executor of your estate. In addition, a designated trustee will need to manage the trust property and distribute it according to the instructions in the trust document. While such individuals may be carefully selected, even the most responsible individual may not have the knowledge, willingness, or ability to adequately administer your estate plan.

Fortunately, Destiny Law Firm can help with the administration of any part of your estate plan. Having professional legal assistance throughout the administration process can ensure an estate plan is properly carried out in the most efficient manner and with the least effect on your loved ones.

Probate Challenges and Estate Litigation

While Destiny Law seeks to minimize the issues that may arise through meticulous estate planning, beneficiaries and potential heirs can challenge the validity of a will during the probate process, as can beneficiaries challenge a trust document. In addition to management and distribution, we can represent the estate in such challenges, which can significantly delay and increase the cost of estate administration. We work to resolve such conflicts in the most favorable manner while upholding the integrity of the estate plan.
