Estates and Probate
Estate planning allows you to decide what will happen to your property after death and how best to take care of the ones you love. An estate plan may take many forms, from the standard Last Will and Testament to Declarations of Trust that are capable of managing property through multiple generations. At Heidgerd & Edwards, LLP, we counsel clients on what options are available to them and provide recommendations intended to help you and your family choose the estate planning documents that are right for your family or business situation.
Estate administration begins when a loved one passes away and property has to be distributed according to probate law. This process can include probating the will, applying for letters of appointment as an administrator or executor, filing accountings of property with the court, as well as closing the estate and making final distributions of property. At Heidgerd & Edwards, LLP, we counsel individuals through the estate administration process and the many challenges it can present.
There are several areas of law related to estate planning and administration that you may need to deal with. These can include guardianships, powers of attorney, and trusts.
