The Most Important Services Blue Ash Estate Planning Lawyers Provide
The estate planning services that Zimmer Law Firm will provide to you will be customized to meet your specific needs, in light of the assets you own, your family situation, and the goals that you have for the future. However, for most clients, the most important services that our firm provides include:
- Planning for illness, injury, or incapacity: It’s important to be prepared in case you become sick or hurt. You need to provide instructions for what kinds of medical care you’ll receive in case you cannot consent to care in an emergency. You should also designate someone to make decisions and manage your assets for you if you become unable to do so. And, it is a good idea to make sure there is a plan in place so you can afford nursing home care in case you need it, as it’s not typically covered by Medicare or by private insurers and it could be very expensive to pay out-of-pocket for nursing home care.
- Making sure your assets are protected: You work hard for your money and there are many potential sources of loss, from high nursing home care bills to estate tax to an irresponsible heir who you wish to provide an inheritance for. Our firm helps you to identify risks to your wealth so you can put a comprehensive plan in place to minimize those risks and reduce the chances of something happening to your hard-earned property.
- Ensuring your loved ones are provided for: You’ll want to ensure that your family is taken care of even if you get sick or if you pass away. This can mean buying life insurance, and it can mean taking smart steps to facilitate the transfer of assets in a manner that addresses the needs of your heirs or beneficiaries. For example, you need to ensure that you understand how to effectively leave money to a minor child using the Uniform Transfers to Minors Act or by creating a trust. If you have disabled children, you’ll need to structure an inheritance so it does not cause a loss of access to means-tested benefits. And, if you have young kids or a disabled child, you’ll also need to make plans for who will care for them if you cannot.
- Helping you to avoid estate planning mistakes: Zimmer Law Firm can help you to avoid costly errors that you might make if you created an estate plan without getting legal help. You don’t want to assume that your affairs are in order and your family will be protected if you’ve actually not put the right plans in place or made legally valid trust documents.
These are just some of the many key ways that our legal team helps you. Everyone’s situation is different, so you should schedule a personalized consultation with our firm now before it becomes too late for you to put plans in place to protect your future.
