Effective Estate Planning Strategies

At the Law Offices of John A. Guthrie in Pleasanton, California, our practice areas focus on individuals and their families. Our experienced lawyers know that planning for the future can help families achieve common goals. In working together to meet their shared purposes, they grow closer. To a large degree, families who plan together, stay together. If you have a family business or need a trust, will or health care power of attorney, talk to us about your family estate plan.

Estate Planning For Modern Families

Everybody needs a will. In addition, divorcing spouses need to update any wills, trusts, living wills and powers of attorney to reflect their current family status. At the Law Offices of John A. Guthrie, we understand that divorce and remarriage can make for blended families and complex family trees — and we know how to use estate planning instruments to protect your interests in these cases.

We can help you with:

  • Will and trusts, which should be updated if you have recently divorced or remarried
  • Prenuptial agreements (also called ante-nuptial agreements) may not be romantic, but they're a smart idea if you are remarrying
  • Separating your assets in order to protect your children's inheritance

Don't Wait Another Day

If you have recently been divorced or remarried and you didn't do any estate planning, don't wait to contact our firm to discuss your concerns. Whether you need to update existing documents or create new ones, our family law attorneys are at your service.

If you don't have a will yet or haven't updated it because you think it costs too much, you will be surprised to learn that not having a current estate plan could end up costing you and your family much more than our cost-effective legal services. To learn more, take advantage of our free initial consultations. Call the Law Offices of John A. Guthrie in Pleasanton at 925-271-4342 or send us an email.
