WILLS & TRUSTS
From drafting a Last Will and Testament for a husband and wife to completing an estate plan, Keuling Law Firm LLC provides you with affordable, professional, and timely service.
LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT
Then Last Will and Testament, (the "Will"), is a written declaration instructing your personal representative to distribute your property to specific individuals
including relatives, children, friends, and others in amounts and through means set forth in your will. Without a will, the probate laws where you live will dictate how your property will be distributed.
Trusts are written instruments that also convey instructions for the distribution of your property when you pass. The revocable trust is a trust created during your lifetime that contains the property you wish to convey to trust beneficiaries upon your passing. The difference between the will and the trust is most trusts can be structured to avoid probate where a will generally is subject to the administration process set forth in a state's probate laws.
DURABLE POWER OF ATTORNEY
The Durable Power of Attorney is a written instrument that allows you to transfer certain legal powers to another person so they can act in your place should you become incapacitated. The powers granted by application of a power of attorney are generally temporary allowing the grantor the authority to modify, delete specific powers or to designate another person to utilize them.
