Perhaps the most well-known aspect of most estate plans, a will gives you the opportunity to outline your final wishes and name the individual who will oversee the distribution of your assets. In addition, you can use this document to identify how and to whom your assets should be transferred and identify guardians for your children. While a will is an integral part of your plan, it will not allow your loved ones to bypass the difficult probate process. If this is your ultimate goal, consider establishing trusts, too.


A trust is an arrangement that can simplify the process of asset distribution. You, the grantor, place certain assets into the trust. You will then authorize a third party—a trustee—to administer the assets in the trust. The assets will then be transferred to the designated beneficiaries down the line. One advantage of a trust is that it may allow your family members to avoid probate after you pass away. This will give them the chance to focus on grieving and moving forward as opposed to navigating a complex legal matter.

Ready to Plan for Tomorrow?

Powers of Attorney

Through the creation of a durable power of attorney, you can name the individual who will be in charge of managing your estate and your finances in the event that you are unable to do so. This legal document can give you peace of mind knowing that important decisions will be made by someone you can truly trust.

Advance Medical Directives

If you become incapacitated or terminally ill, you may not have the wherewithal to make life-altering medical decisions. Setting up advance medical directives can help guide your doctors and caretakers as they strive to act on your behalf.

These are just some of the legal documents you may choose to include in your customized plan. Let's work together to craft a tailor-made roadmap for the future of your estate. Reach out to my firm in Chase City today.
