At the law office of W. Frank Ward, P.C., I provide personalized estate planning services to clients throughout Marietta, Georgia, and the surrounding communities. As a Marietta estate planning attorney, I do not use “cookie cutter” documents. I understand that every estate is unique and will work closely with you to establish a plan that meets your family’s needs. With more than 26 years of experience, I will put you in control of the distribution of your assets and plan for the care of your minor children and protection of assets for your adult children who receive your distributions. I will ensure that all documents are legally sound.
When you need efficient and effective help developing a plan for your estate, contact me, a Georgia wills and trusts lawyer, online or call 678-905-8753 for a no-obligation consultation.
Preserving Family Harmony Through Proper Estate Planning
When it is time to plan for your family’s future, I will work closely with you to learn about your goals and objectives. I will help determine what your assets and liabilities are and provide you with the different strategies available to help you meet your goals. Once we have determined an approach that best meets your needs, I will prepare all the documents necessary to establish and implement your estate plan, including:
- Trusts, including living and irrevocable trusts
- Powers of attorney
- Advance medical directives and living wills
- Estate tax planning
Through the proper drafting of estate planning documents, I will work to ensure that family harmony is preserved. I can help you avoid the emotional battles that sometimes occur when siblings are left with shares in equal real property and have different goals for the property. I can also help you prevent accidental disinheritance if you remarry either after the death of your spouse or after a previous divorce which had children from that marriage. My goal is to ensure that your ultimate wishes are respected without the emotional turmoil that follows as estate plan which doesn’t take real like into consideration.
Experienced Representation in Probate and Trust Administration
As a Marietta probate attorney, I have helped numerous executors and trustees navigate the complicated process of probate and trust administration. I will explain what the common considerations of probate and trust administration are as I help you settle the debts and tax obligations of the estate. I can also ensure that the assets of a trust or an estate are distributed in an orderly manner. By making sure an estate is administered properly the first time around, you can save yourself a lot of future expense and headaches.
Helping You Plan for the Care of Loved Ones
Planning for the care of dependents or aging loved ones is an important part of any estate plan. I can set up trusts and plans for potential incapacitation which will provide for the care of your loved ones, after your death and even your own incapacitation, particularly for minor children, elderly family members and loved ones with disabilities.
