Our Will and Trust Services in St Louis Park
Although many other solutions exist to help you manage your interests, a will typically is the foundation of your estate planning. A will can address a wide range of personal and inheritance matters including naming a representative to oversee your succession, designating a legal guardian for a minor child, or deciding who receives which of your assets.
Many people find trusts useful to organize the distribution of specific parts of their estate. Our lawyers can walk you through the different types of trust that exist to find one that meets your needs. When you establish a trust, you name a person of your choice to manage certain assets and pass them to specific beneficiaries. Property in trusts can avoid probate.
Supplemental Need or Special Need Trusts are trusts designed to provide financial support to a loved one who has a physical or mental disability. Such trusts do not disqualify the beneficiary from receiving benefits through the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medical Assistance (Medicaid) programs.
Additional Estate Planning Solutions for Your Peace of Mind
Planning for your medical care for your older age or in the event you are incapacitated can help you access the treatment and procedures you desire. We can help you create Advanced Healthcare Directives to designate preferred medical providers and hospitals and give instructions for life-saving surgeries, resuscitation, and palliative care.
Our lawyers can suggest HIPAA authorizations to authorize the release of your health records to doctors in an emergency where you are unable to give consent at the time. We can also draft Powers of Attorney documents in which you can name somebody to make medical and/or financial decisions on your behalf if you are incapacitated.
Serving our community in Minnesota includes offering cabin planning services to help you organize who gets to use your family cabin, pay for maintenance and upgrades, and eventually inherit ownership.
If you have lost a relative and are now going through the court-mandated process known as probate, Guttman Law, PLLC provides legal counsel and representation to support you during these challenging times. Whether your loved one left clear estate planning documents or passed away intestate, we can guide you at every step of the legal proceedings.
What Are the Benefits of Working with an Estate Planning Attorney in Minnesota?
You may be tempted to draft your will on your own but working with an attorney can ensure that your document is legally binding under all state laws. At Guttman Law, PLLC, we can also discuss what other estate planning solutions you could benefit from.
Estate planning can help you organize the management of your assets and your medical care if you ever become incapacitated. It can also alleviate stress for your loved ones after you pass away. We typically recommend that you review your existing documents every few years to check that everything is still relevant. If you experience a life change such as welcoming a new child, we also suggest you amend your estate planning accordingly.
We prioritize estate planning tailored to your and your family’s unique circumstances and you can expect honest and open communication with us at all times. Whether you already have a will or another type of estate planning document or are brand new to this type of planning, our attorneys are here for you. We remain available to amend or revoke any document whose current form no longer applies to your preferences.
