Estate planning is something we all must face at some point in our lives. Many people put this vital planning off believing that there is always time to take care of things in the future. Unfortunately, life is what happens when you are not looking. While the State of Georgia has written a will for you, the provisions in that will might not be what you would wish.
At Johnson & Freeman, LLC, we have the experience you need to guide you through the complex issues of estate planning. One of our attorneys will sit down with you (and your spouse if you are married) to determine your needs. You will have many questions and we encourage you to make a list and bring that list with you. That will ensure that we address all of your questions and fears.
Our Estate Planning Group provides counsel to clients in the planning of wills, trusts, estate and guardianship. We work with financial investment advisers and other professionals to assist in providing financial security for our clients. We also represent charitable organizations on matters concerning donations and deferred giving techniques.
We can assist you in deciding if you need a simple Will, a durable Trust, or if one of the many alternative options would be best for you. Before coming to see us, you should determine whom you would trust to be your executor. This person should be trustworthy and you should speak to this person first to be sure that they are willing to accept this responsibility.
Estate planning is essential if you have minor children or a dependent who is disabled. In case of your death, you need to provide for your minor child or children. In cases such as these, a guardian is required. This person can also be the executor. Again, you should have a long talk with the person or persons you have in mind to ensure that they are willing to accept this responsibility.
