Mesa Estate Planning Attorney
When a loved one dies, his or her relatives may find themselves at odds over funeral plans, division of that person’s assets, and even who will take care of the decedent’s pet. Few people enjoy the process of planning for their own death, however, it should be addressed while people are still in good health and have sound minds. If you want to ensure that your final wishes are respected and followed, you should retain a Mesa estate planning attorney.
Estate planning lawyers advise clients on the best processes to follow as they plan their estate and succession. Many people want to ensure that their assets will be divided fairly among their survivors. Estate planning lawyers document their clients’ wishes and help them draft a will that clearly stipulates how bank accounts, stocks, life insurance, real estate, and other property will be distributed among friends and family members.
Likewise, people often have very clear wishes about the conduct of their funerals. Many of our clients rely on us to help them stipulate what religious services should be included in their funeral, plan where they would like to be buried, and whether or not they want a burial or cremation. These issues sometimes cause conflict among family members, especially if the deceased failed to state such wishes prior to his or her death. Rather than have relatives bicker about the funeral planning process, our Mesa clients can take comfort in knowing that their stipulations will be clearly documented and presented to their relatives.
The importance of estate planning is not limited to older individuals. In fact, parents with young children should plan their estates carefully to ensure that questions about their children’s custody or welfare are settled satisfactorily in the event of the parents’ untimely death. As Arizona estate planning attorneys, we can help Mesa families plan such matters as:
- Funeral planning and burial.
- Division of assets and property.
- Custody of minor children in the event of their parents’ deaths.
Take charge of your estate, and secure the future of your loved ones. Consider making a formal estate plan with Gunderson, Denton & Peterson, PC and contact us today at 480-655-7440.
