Plan for the Future with Our Comprehensive Estate Planning Services
If you have never drafted a will or any other estate planning document, our lawyers can guide you through the process and share all relevant information. We strive to empower our clients with all information applicable to their specific needs. While we provide thorough legal counsel, you are the one most familiar with your and your family’s circumstances. Since you can amend or revoke estate planning solutions in the future, we recommend that you draft your first documents shortly after becoming of legal age.
Drafting a will is a key component of estate planning to avoid dying intestate. Passing away without a will means that Minnesota’s intestacy laws govern the distribution of your assets regardless of your or your loved ones’ preferences.
You can address a wide range of matters in a will, including:
- Appointing a representative to oversee your succession
- Naming a legal guardian for any minor child you may have
- Providing instruction on how to distribute your property
Healthcare planning is another important part of estate planning. We can walk you through the different options you have such as Advanced Healthcare Directives and HIPAA authorizations. When you create Advanced Healthcare Directives, you can designate preferred doctors and hospitals for treatment. This type of document also allows you to authorize emergency or experimental surgery to save your life and provide instructions for resuscitation and palliative care.
Our estate planning services also include:
- Creating a trust so a particular individual can manage your assets to avoid probate and gain more flexibility and tax efficiency
- Establishing a Supplemental or Special Need Trust for a loved one with a mental or physical disability without disqualifying them from receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medicaid benefits
- Cabin planning to organize property management, transfer of ownership, and/or property use of your family cabin
- Drafting financial and/or medical Power of Attorneys to name a specific individual to make decisions on your behalf if you become incapacitated
Guttman Law, PLLC can also accompany you through the probate process after your loved one passed away. This court-managed process applies to most successions in Minnesota. We can help you at any step of probate, whether to file a petition with the appropriate court, or petitioning to appoint an administrator.
