Frequently Asked Questions
Should I just use a template to plan the future of my estate?
No, we do not recommend using templates or alternative legal resources. When you are planning the future of your estate and your family’s inheritance, you need individual, customized solutions.
At the Law Offices of Savin & Bursk, we create a future plan as unique as your estate. If you have already begun planning with a template program and without the legal assistance of an attorney, we can help you. Contact us today to fix the situation and provide you with an estate plan that will give you complete confidence.
What is the difference between a will and a trust?
A will is a more simple solution for distributing your estate after passing. A trust is a more sophisticated estate plan that accounts for complex issues. Both provide a guide in transferring your property.
If you are not sure which is sufficient for your situation, we can help. Contact us for a FREE legal consultation. We will discuss your unique situation and provide a customized plan that fits your needs.
What is probate?
The word “probate” refers to the actual court process of allocating your estate and assets after you have passed on. The court will refer either to your will or to the law in order to administer your estate. This court process will close all of your financial affairs and divide your remaining assets according to the law.
You can limit the stress and complexity of this process by working with a probate lawyer now. We can guide you through this process and help you plan your estate administration.
What are guardianships?
Guardianships are a common area of estate planning and refer to the care of minors (under age 18). A guardianship occurs when a person is assigned as a guardian or protector of a minor—such as when the minor’s previous guardian (e.g., parent) passes away.
When forming an estate plan with a lawyer, you can appoint guardians for your child in the event of your passing.
