Estate Planning

More than 1 million Baby Boomers are now turning 60 years old every year, according to the latest statistics.

That number may already include you … or you could soon be joining those who have already reached that milestone.

Either way, one of the most important things you can do now is to take steps to secure your retirement assets.

There is no escaping the fact that people today are living longer, but with longer life comes a whole host of new questions, such as:

  • Will you outlive your money?
  • How can you best preserve and protect your assets?
  • How does Medicaid factor in to all of this?
  • Do you need long term care insurance?
  • How can you give assets to your children and grandchildren without losing total control of your finances?
  • Should you purchase an annuity?
  • Will you be able to afford a nursing home or assisted living facility?
  • And much, much more!

Our attorneys have extensive experience crafting estate planning solutions that ensure your assets are protected.

We can help you with all of the following:

  • Estate planning and who needs it
  • Federal estate taxes and who pays them
  • What a trustee does
  • What a trust is and why you need to know about it
  • And much, much more

Plus, our experienced attorneys’ knowledge of Kentucky Medicaid regulations will help you protect your life’s savings (as well as your home) and maybe even enable you to become eligible for Medicaid sooner!

When you die your ‘estate’ (everything you own) needs to be redistributed. By default that distribution is done in the probate system where the fees are set by the court based on the value of your estate.

We can also help you get a will that keeps your heirs from going through a nasty “will contest.”

A will contest is a legal challenge to the validity of a will or of any of the terms of a will. Such challenges are usually posed by family members of the deceased who feel that they have been cheated out of their inheritance or some portion of their inheritance.

If the family members feel they have something to gain by challenging the terms of the will, a legal contest is the best way to determine if the will is actually valid. Will challenges are most common in wealthy families due to the extensive assets and large monetary amounts often involved.

But they can happen in any family – and we’re sure you don’t want your family members going through something like that.
