Legal Guidance on the Future of Your Family

What Does an Estate Planning Lawyer Do?

When most people think of estate planning, they generally think of creating a will that outlines who will receive what items, assets, and financial support systems upon the passing of the estate owner. However, our estate planning attorneys can help you with much more than drafting a will.

Estate planning largely focuses on how property will be handled after a person's death. However, planning an estate can also concern how property is handled during a person's lifetime. There are many different aspects of this area of the law, all which serve a purpose in establishing the security of yourself and your family.

Our estate planning lawyers in Charlotte can help you with:

  • Drafting and enforcing wills
  • Establishing trusts
  • Making decisions about asset division
  • Appointing beneficiaries and trustees
  • Identifying powers of attorney
  • Creating documents concerning medical decisions
  • Avoiding or handling probate issues
  • Understanding and handling tax questions
  • Enforcing a family member’s estate planning
  • Navigating disagreements between family members or unclear language in an existing estate plan

Benefits of Estate Planning

With the help of an estate planning lawyer, you can make decisions about how your assets will be distributed upon your death, how your family will be cared for, and how potential problems will be resolved. In life, an estate plan can provide guidance on the handling of life-altering situations, such as what to do if you or a loved one are incapacitated or facing other medical issues. An attorney can not only help you understand and navigate these circumstances but can also help you acquire legally binding documents and decisions that keep the wishes of yourself and your family on record. Estate planning provides guidance and support, and it can help your family avoid conflicts and confusion during an emotionally trying time.
