Why Do You Need an Estate Planning Lawyer?

An experienced wills lawyer can do more than just preparing your will. Many people are familiar with wills, but they are unaware there are other estate planning issues that should be dealt with. However, once they meet with an experienced wills, trusts and probate lawyer in Belvidere and Rockford, IL, you will see there are a number of things they can help with, including:

  • Living Trusts
  • Living Wills
  • Probate and trust administration
  • Health care power of attorney
  • Guardianship for minors and incapacitated adults
  • Other estate planning services

There is a misconception about estate planning. Many people believe that if you are not wealthy then you do not have to worry about estate planning, the truth is if you have a family you must worry about estate planning. Unfortunately, no one can predict what life has in store for them a decade down the road, sometimes life can change direction on a dime. Having your estate well planned will leave nothing up in the air. Your wishes will be carried out as you dictated.

We understand figuring out estate planning matters isn’t the most pleasant experience. This is why our wills, trusts and probate attorney in Rockford and Belvidere, IL, takes pride in working closely with our clients to make the process as easy and stress-free as possible. It’s difficult to think about the day when you will no longer be there for your family and friends. However, putting a will or trust in place as needed will ensure your wishes are properly carried out after you are gone and will give you peace of mind your loved ones will go through less stress when they’re going through an already difficult time.

If you are injured, become incapacitated in any way, you will have the legally binding documents that will stand up in court to ensure that life continues as you prescribed. Even though you may have no reason to think you will go through this at any point in your life, it’s always best to be prepared in case the worst should happen. It’s well worth the time, effort and money to put the right precautions in place rather than to leave your family scrambling if you are ever incapacitated.
