Brooklyn Park Wills and Trusts Attorney
Estate planning is a subject that many people find difficult to consider. At Nostdahl Law Firm, LLC, in Bloomington, Minnesota, I understand what you are going through, and I strive to take anxiety out of the equation. I encourage my clients to look at estate planning as an opportunity. With proper planning, you can have confidence that your wishes will be carried out leading up to and after your death.
For elderly clients, peace of mind can be found in knowing that the estate you've worked so hard to build will be protected and that your legacy will be passed on according to your wishes. Moreover, by recording your wishes, you can ensure that your loved ones will be spared the unnecessary expense and confusion of sorting out your estate at a difficult and emotional time.
For young families, estate planning may be the farthest thing from your mind. Nevertheless, it is essential to your family's future security that you create a plan for the worst case scenario. With proper planning, you can rest easy knowing that your children will be cared for by the guardians you designate and that they will be provided for in the event of unexpected tragedy.
If you have questions about how to get started, talk to an experienced Bloomington estate planning attorney who can help you navigate this sometimes confusing process. I provide individualized and comprehensive estate planning services, including the following:
- Revocable and Irrevocable Trusts
- Powers of Attorney
- Living Wills and Advance Health Care Directives
Probate and Contested Wills or Trusts
I represent executors, personal representatives and others who have been given the responsibility of administering an estate. I can help you with the inventory of assets, preparation of tax returns and other matters. I will work with you to ensure that all duties have been fulfilled and represent you in any challenges from beneficiaries, creditors or other concerned parties.
I also represent clients on both sides of will and trust contests. If a beneficiary challenges the validity of a will or trust, I can represent the executor or the beneficiary in these actions. I will work to resolve any disputes in the most efficient, cost-effective and non-confrontational manner possible.
Estate Planning Help for Those Who Have Recently Been Divorced
During your marriage, you probably included your spouse's name on a number of estate planning documents that give him or her access to considerable assets and power. After a divorce, it is important to review such documents as wills, trusts, powers of attorney and living wills. Until you revise them, your former spouse still has all the authority the documents provide. As your lawyer, I will help you review the necessary documents and make the appropriate revisions.
