Wills Attorney In Northwest Indiana
When most people think of estate planning, they think of wills and trusts. Wills and trusts are often the central, if not the only instruments that people use to provide for their loved ones and disburse their assets and property.
Wills allow people to not only provide for their loved ones and control the distribution of property, but they also allow people to minimize the potential for conflict among their heirs. For younger parents who may not feel that they have acquired sufficient property or assets to merit drawing up a will, there is still the need to establish who would become a guardian for your children. In Indiana, a relatively new law established guardianship directives that allow parents to ensure children will be cared for by the party of their choice without the need for a will indicating that choice.
Keeping property out of probate is a central reason many people consider forming a trust. The establishment of transfer-on-death deeds accomplishes that task now without the need for a trust.
