Let Our Charlotte Estate Planning Attorneys Help You Plan For The Future
Effective estate planning provides peace of mind. A forward-thinking estate plan can also help prevent confusion and heartache among grieving family members after the death of a loved one.
At Kennedy Law Associates, our Charlotte estate planning lawyers have extensive experience in these matters. Depending on your needs and concerns, our estate planning attorneys are prepared to create wills, trusts, powers of attorney and other documents that clarify your wishes, simplify the transfer of your property, and help your estate avoid probate. We can also help you establish guardianships to ensure that your children or incapacitated loved ones are cared for.
We Can Update Your Existing Estate Plan When Life Changes
People often create their estate plans and then never think of the documents again. However, when life changes, so should your estate plan. Major life events such as divorce, the birth of a child or a significant financial windfall are all good reasons to update your estate planning documents. Our Charlotte estate planning attorneys can review your current plan and revise the documents to account for any life changes.
We understand that you may have a lot of questions. Our Estate Planning FAQ provides some answers.
Establishing Guardianship In North Carolina
We have extensive experience in establishing guardianship of adults who have become incapacitated, as well as establishing guardianship of minor children. There may be multiple ways to establish guardianship, including through powers of attorney and wills. We also help clients in the removal of guardians in cases of mismanagement, misconduct or negligence. Our guardianship attorneys can look at your specific circumstances and determine the best course of action for you and your loved ones.
Helping Your Estate Avoid Probate
The probate process can be time-consuming and costly. Our attorneys can help alleviate your burdens by guiding you through the probate process after the death of a loved one. We can also implement a strategy that helps your estate avoid probate altogether. In most cases, this is done with the use of trusts and other estate planning techniques that shield property from probate proceedings.
