Why Is Estate Planning Important?

Many of our clients do not understand how crucial it is to begin planning for their estates sooner, rather than later. Sometimes problems can arise that catch people unexpectedly. By having a plan in place early on, you can avoid having your assets go into probate where courts will divide your property among your heirs at their discretion. As they have no knowledge of your situation, this can cause a lot of problems. Get the help of our team to better understand the legal options you have available.

We help clients with many estate planning matters, including:

  • Asset protection: Our firm understands how to help courts divide assets according to your wishes
  • Interdiction/curatorship: When a person is no longer able to make decisions for themselves (called interdiction), a curator is appointed to make decisions on their behalf
  • Estate litigation: Sometimes things go wrong with asset division. Our team stands ready to fight to ensure your family’s rights are protected
  • Tutorships: Also known in other states as guardianship, a tutor steps in to take care of a minor child following their parent’s passing
  • Power of attorney: Once a person is incapacitated to a degree where they can no longer make decisions for themselves, a power of attorney can be used to carry out predetermined wishes
  • Successions: A succession is the process of settling a descendant’s estate and distributing the assets to the heirs
  • Trusts: Protecting your assets from fees and taxes can sometimes be achieved by setting up trusts that are declared for specific purposes only. We understand how to use these to meet our client’s goals
  • Wills: Naming your heirs and how property will be divided is a crucial part of managing your estate. Let Richie, Richie & Oberle, L.L.P. help you do it right
