estate planning

Estate Planning

Estate administration is a portion of family law that also requires experience and knowledge of local and state laws in order to protect the interest of the family. You can begin with drawing up a will, however, that is only the beginning of making sure everything provided in the will is handled properly.

Whether there is a will or a loved one passes on without one, you will need a knowledgeable family attorney to help make sure your estate’s assets are appropriately accounted for, divided, and maintained.

Services

The Fuire Law Firm in Calabasas, CA can help administer your estate in the following ways:

• Submission of the Will to Probate—This step is necessary to prove that the will is valid and unaltered in anyway. I will help walk you through the process, making it as painless as possible.

• Trust Accounts Administration—Distributing assets and funds for an estate is another important part of the estate administration process. I make sure funds are properly distributed and help protect the interests of the estate against fraud. I account for how much, how often, and where the funds are distributed. More than a fill-in-the-blank solution, I help guide you through the process of administering trust funds to family members or other parties named in the will.

• Claims Against the Estate— It is not uncommon for parties to disagree with provisions made in the will. While it is not an ideal situation, it may be necessary to actually bring a claim against the decedent’s estate, or in fact, defend a claim brought against it. In either case, I have got you covered.

You do not want to leave the future of your estate to chance; get protection with proper estate administration. Reach out to me today to ensure your assets are secure..

last will testament

Wills

Have you made provisions for your family in the case of your death? Many people pass on without properly documenting what they would like done with their valuables and assets after they have gone on. Proper planning relieves undue pressure on family members in an already stressful time.

Wills are legally binding documents that allow you to voice your desires after you are no longer able to make them known. Thankfully, drafting your last will and testament does not require many steps or exorbitant costs. However, the more assets you have, the more important it is for you to seek legal advice about drafting your will.

I can help you document your wishes and make sure they are carried out as you have prescribed. For close to two decades, I have helped families protect what they have worked for by drafting wills that plainly articulate their wishes.

Drafting your will includes the following:

  • Clear Language—Leave no room for interpretation as it pertains to your assets, bank accounts, and life insurance policies. I will help you plainly describe how you want your estate handled.
  • Legal Witness —Drafting a will does not require an attorney, but using one will add credibility to the document and keep your wishes confidential.
  • Covers All the Bases—The Fuire Law Firm can help you identify areas you need to address. As years and assets fluctuate, it is a good habit to consult with your family lawyer to re-assess what should be included, and how it should be addressed.

Planning

It is never too early to begin drafting your will. In fact, the moment you begin to accrue wealth, assets, or life insurance policies, you should begin making your wishes known. As mentioned earlier, while you do not have to use an attorney to draft wills, it can help things run much smoother after you are gone, and it cuts down on miscommunication. If you are looking for a complete solution for your family law needs, The Fuire Law Firm is your solution.

See how Dennis P. Fuire can help you protect your family’s future and provide the legal counsel necessary to help you navigate some of life’s toughest obstacles.

After recently retiring, I realized I needed help with protecting the nest egg I’d saved up over the years. I’m glad I found Dennis to help with my estate planning because he was very helpful in outlining all the considerations for preserving my wealth.
