Estate Planning Documents and Services

Wills: A will can address asset distribution and designate beneficiaries, guardianships, and a personal representative. Other designations can be made to reflect the individual’s wishes.

Living wills: A living will indicates your preferences for artificial life support if you are in a terminal condition
with no hope of recovery.

Trusts: A trust is a powerful estate planning tool that can help youprovide for beneficiaries in a creative and controlled manner..

Power of attorney: Health care or financial powers of attorney designate a trusted person to make health
decisions (or manage finances) for you if you become incapacitated.

Guardianships: A guardianship designates the legal right to take care of someone else such as an elderly parent, a minor child who is left without parents, or a disabled adult child.

Probate and estate administration: The process of finalizing an estate after an individual dies is known as probate. We can help you through this process if you have been named the executor of a will in Ohio.

While you may have told your family what you want to happen if you pass away or become incapacitated, those wishes won’t be enforceable unless they have been memorialized in a valid legal document. Arrange a consultation to answer your questions.

For more information about the wills and the probate court process, contact an estate planning lawyer by phone or in person.

We would be happy to set up an appointment to answer your questions. Contact us or call 440-356-3008 today.
