Wills, trusts, and other elements of estate planning are important for anyone who wants to ensure that when they die, their financial assets are used in the way they intend.
When people die without such legal documents (a status called “intestate”), then state law and court-appointed officials decide how their assets are distributed. Many people in North Carolina die without formal written wills.
As a nonprofit law firm, Triad Legal Group believes that all people, no matter what level of wealth or income they have, should have an estate plan along with the appropriate legal documents to carry it out.
Besides wills, many people use trusts to ensure that their assets are handled the way they want. Trusts, unlike wills, allow heirs to skip probate court, making the process easier on the heirs.
What’s the best solution for you and your family? That depends on your unique circumstances. And that’s why Triad Legal Group offers estate planning attorneys to help you in your circumstance.
