Experienced Estate Planning Lawyer in Lumberton

Will and trusts
Without the appropriate estate planning, your accumulated wealth and your family could be at the mercy of the probate court system. Over the course of your life, you may have accumulated a wealth of personal belongings and assets, including investments, real estate and savings accounts. You’ve worked hard for what you’ve achieved; it just makes sense that you’d want to have some say in how your property is distributed when the time comes. At the firm of Richard Townsend, Attorney at Law in Lumberton, we can help you reduce associated taxes, protect your privacy, and preserve your estate for the good of your family.

The Differences Between Wills and Trusts

A will is a document typically written up by a lawyer to protect the distribution of a deceased person’s belongings and property. A trust is created to ensure the proper management of property to benefit others. This legal arrangement could be part of a will. There are benefits to each:
  • A will ensures that your property is disposed of according to your wishes, avoiding the hassles and delays of probate in Pembroke. It can reduce expenses and assure that young children are protected and cared for as you have directed.
  • A trust provides consistency in the management of your property. It ensures that disabled loved ones are provided for. This legal arrangement can be used to ensure flexibility during your lifetime and proper distribution of your belongings when appropriate.
Sometimes there are conflicts between family members, such as contested wills or a contested guardianship. A Saint Pauls’ attorney can provide estate litigation to help navigate this difficult situation.
