Protect Your Assets.
The law firm of Hank Weatherby & Associates, PC are leading probate lawyers serving the Avon area. The purpose of Probate Lawyers in Connecticut is to make certain your estate is handled properly after you die. It is important that you plan carefully for distribution of your property and assets after you die. In Connecticut, if you die without a Will, you are "intestate". If you are intestate, there are rules in place governing the process of settling your estate. There are many steps to settling an estate. Do you want the state to decide who receives your property?
In Avon CT or greater Hartford, get in touch with Attorney Hank Weatherby. Weatherby & Associates provide Probate Services as executors, co-executors, or as legal counsel to make the probate process as stress free as possible. Whether you have left a Will or not, your debts must be settled, bills paid, and taxes must be filed according to a timetable. The process of probating an estate will necessitate a thorough investigation of your finances, belongings, and personal business. Would you like to avoid a great deal of this burdensome process for your loved ones? Weatherby & Associates offer comprehensive Estate Planning services, which include Trust Administration.
Assets which have been transferred to a trust are not probated like other assets. Instead, the trust assets are administered according to the terms of the trust. Depending on the intentions of the trust creator, trust assets may be distributed directly to beneficiaries, held and invested for later distribution, used to create scholarships or grants, or transferred to charitable organizations. So if you have a sizable estate, you should make arrangements with an experienced attorney like Hank Weatherby to administer a trust.
