Estate Planning Services

Estate planning law covers a wide range of issues from the creation of wills to probate and more. Not only does an estate plan protect your financial and physical assets, but it also protects your family in their greatest time of grief. Our team of estate planning lawyers in Huntsville will help you navigate the complexities of estate planning, ensuring that your affairs are in order at all times.

When Should You Create an Estate Plan?

We firmly believe that any adult over the age of 19 years old should have a will in place. It is a common misconception that a will is only important if you have a great number of assets or wealth. Many people also believe that they do not need to create a will until they reach old age.

Because a will can be updated at any point in time, there is no harm in protecting your assets through a will, even in your younger years. Unfortunately, none of us knows what the future holds. Having a will in place ensures that your assets are protected in the event of an unforeseen accident.

Estate Plans Are Not Just Valuable Upon Your Passing

Another common misconception surrounding estate planning is that it is only necessary for distributing your assets upon passing. However, this is not the case! Have you ever considered what would happen to your assets if you were incapacitated or ill for a long period?

Your estate plan can address these types of situations, ensuring that your property and assets are cared for in the event of illness or incapacitation.

We understand that creating an estate plan can be a sobering task. However, it is truly the best way to provide for your family, protect your assets, and ensure that your wishes are followed upon your passing. Our Huntsville estate planning lawyers will work with you to create an estate plan that is suited to your unique set of circumstances.

Update Your Estate Plan

When was the last time you looked at your estate plan? It is important to review your estate plan periodically to ensure that the information is accurate. Many times, there will be additions or changes that need to be made to ensure that your estate plan reflects your current situation. Depending on your circumstances, you may choose to review your estate plan once a year. However, most individuals should consider a complete estate plan review every three to five years. It is also important to update your estate plan following any major life changes.

Our team can help you create, review, and update your estate plan to ensure that it reflects your wishes properly. Contact us today to get started!
