Review Or Creation Of An Estate Plan
To a large degree, families who plan together, stay together. In working together to meet their shared purposes, they grow closer. Because it’s impossible to foresee what the future holds, you must take the time to ensure the right protections are in place for a loved one if you were to become incapacitated or pass away.
At the Law Offices of John A. Guthrie in Pleasanton, California, our estate planning attorney have served individuals and families across Alameda County since 1990. Our estate planning lawyers know that planning for the future can help your family achieve common goals. If you have a family business or need a trust, will or health care power of attorney, talk to us about your estate plan.
It’s also beneficial to seek an estate plan review after finalizing a divorce. Another important step after divorce is to review and update beneficiary designations on insurance policies and investment account that may still list an ex-spouse.
Estate Planning For Modern Families
Remarriage can make for blended families and complex family trees. Our attorneys 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 antenuptial 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
If you haven’t ever taken the time to complete an estate plan or it’s been many years and you worry about accuracy, sit down and discuss your situation with one of our attorneys. We will never suggest something that you don’t need and tailor every plan based on your unique circumstances.
Don’t Wait Another Day
