Why do you need an Albuquerque estate planning lawyer?
Estate planning is a complex process. Hiring an experienced estate planning lawyer in Albuquerque can ensure your wishes are met. Estate attorneys can draft all aspects of an estate plan, including:
- Advance Care Directives outline your preferences for how life-saving healthcare is administered if you are unable to speak for yourself. A surrogate decisionmaker is appointed and authorized to carry out your wishes. Advance care directives include a living will, durable power of attorney, and a health care proxy.
- Last wills and testaments ensure your assets are distributed the way you planned following your death. Wills are legal documents that spell out your final wishes for your estate and are a crucial part of estate planning. When you do not have a will, a judge or other state officials will allocate your assets.
- Probate is the legal process for verifying and authenticating your last will and testament. An executor is appointed during probate. Probate attorneys help identify and secure probate assets, obtain appraisals (when needed), file required court documents, and mediate family disputes over how your estate is distributed.
- Trusts are a legal option for holding financial and other assets you wish to designate to a specific beneficiary. Most people include a trust in their estate plans if they have minor children or grandchildren to whom they want to leave assets. Trusts usually avoid probate, which will speed up the process.
