Estate Planning & Probate Attorney in Springfield, OH

Estate planning can include directives for many situations. Asset allocation, medical care preferences and end-of-life arrangements can all be included in your estate plan. There are also many tools for estate planning, such as wills, powers of attorney and trusts. To learn how you can create a comprehensive plan for your estate, call Gregory K Lind, Attorney at Law.

Wills and trusts

Wills and trusts are some of the most effective tools when establishing plans for your care and your estate. Wills expedite the probate process by providing specific instructions for the allocation of your assets. Trusts can be used to bypass the probate process but must include instructions for all of your assets. Any part of your estate not specifically mentioned in your trust will still have to go through probate court.

Guardianship

The question of who will provide primary care for children, special needs adults and incapacitated elderly family members falls under guardianship law. If preferred guardianship is not specifically addressed in a will, or if the guardianship right is contested by another, the case will likely involve litigation. Guardianship law can also involve who will oversee a child’s inheritance before they turn 18. For more information about guardianship law in Springfield, OH, call Gregory K Lind, Attorney at Law.
