Do You Have a Will or Trust? Will It Accomplish What You Want?
Aldrich Legal Services is pleased to assist you with your estate planning needs. We draft and review wills, trusts and other estate planning documents to help our clients with their estate objectives. Located in Plymouth, Michigan, we assist clients throughout southeast Michigan.
Do You Need an Attorney To Draft A Will?
Wills are an essential part of any estate plan. Without a validly executed will, your estate will pass by the rules of intestate succession at the time of your passing, which may or may not achieve your goals. A carefully drafted and properly executed will can pass your property to your loved ones in the manner of your choosing. A will can also help ensure that your children and other family members understand your wishes, thus minimizing the risk of disputes and litigation.
Do You Need a Trust?
Trusts are one of the most commonly used estate planning documents and can serve a variety of purposes. Different types of trusts may be used to protect assets, minimize probate costs, minimize exposure to estate taxes and achieve other significant benefits. We draft a variety of trusts to help our clients with their estate objectives.
Have You Had Your Estate Plan Reviewed Recently?
In addition to drafting wills, trusts and other estate planning instruments, we can review your existing estate planning documents. If your family structure has changed due to a second marriage, adoption or divorce, you may need to update your estate planning documents to reflect your current wishes and needs. We want you to be certain that your estate plan accomplishes what you want it to.
