It is incumbent upon all of us to make adequate provisions for our children and/or grandchildren at the time of our death. Since we all must face this eventuality, it is a task each of us should undertake, whether we like to think about it or not. After all, dying is the one sure thing that happens to us all.
The attorneys at Michael W. Reeds, P.C., help clients develop tailored estate plans that reflect their wishes, protect their assets and provide for their loved ones. With offices in Walled Lake, Royal Oak and Wyandotte, our estate planning attorneys can help with wills, trusts, powers of attorney, living wills and other documents. We can also answer your questions about estate planning and review existing documents.
Why should I develop an estate plan at all?
- At death, the family should not have to wonder what is going to happen to the decedent’s assets or how and when the assets will be distributed among the heirs
- There should be no need to worry about what assets comprise the decedent’s estate, and where these assets are located
- Decision-making should be done, as much as possible, by the decedent, giving directives or providing directions to those chosen to handle all of the affairs associated with handling the estate and the ultimate distribution of assets
Frequently, the death of a parent will result in a great deal of turmoil within the family. Each child, grandchild or other relative will have an opinion about what should be done with the decedent’s estate. The failure to develop a real estate plan can result in disputes and, in some cases, litigation.
