Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a will?
A common misconception many believe is that wills are only for the wealthy. Everyone collects assets over time, whether in multiple properties, businesses, or just money in the bank. In the event of the unthinkable, your will provides clear, crucial instructions for your loved ones. Questions like, “Who gets what?” “Who’s in charge?” and other important questions are all accounted for in a will.
What happens if I don’t leave behind a will?
When you don’t leave behind a will, it leaves room for confusion, misinterpretation, and potential infighting and drama for your family and friends. A will is similar to a roadmap; without the guide, your loved ones will be completely lost. However, if you do not leave a will, the court will determine an executor.
How are my assets divided?
When you plan your estate with the help of an estate planning lawyer, we will help you create outlines with the intended recipients of assets. Plan for your future and collaborate with the skilled attorneys at White & Jocham.
What is probate?
When you pass away, your assets don’t magically appear on someone’s doorstep. If a will is left behind, it is the first step in a complex and lengthy process called probate. Your executor will serve as the intermediary between the probate court and the rest of your beneficiaries, and they’ll oversee that everyone receives what they’re owed.
Probate involves tracking your assets and getting your assets valued by professionals. Your debts will have to be paid off, and (if your estate is large enough) estate taxes will also have to be paid off. It’s a complicated and lengthy process, and your beneficiaries won’t see a cent until everything else is squared away.
How can an estate planning attorney help me?
Having experienced, skillful legal counsel in your corner while planning your estate is essential. While many assume that estate planning attorney’s only handle wills and trusts, the attorneys at White & Jocham go above and beyond.
Our estate planning lawyers ensure you’re looked after when you can no longer care for yourself and that your loved ones who rely on your support will be cared for after your death.
