Georgetown Estate Planning Attorney Gives Your Intentions Legal Force
Central Kentucky firm assists with testamentary documents and probate
Proper estate planning benefits both you and the people you love. You gain the security of knowing that that the assets you worked to accumulate over a lifetime will be distributed based on your wishes rather than Kentucky intestacy laws. At the same time, creating a sound estate plan will help your beneficiaries secure ownership of investments, liquid assets and tangible items promptly and efficiently. At Larmour Law Offices, PSC in Georgetown, we are committed to finding the right solutions for clients throughout Central Kentucky. Whether you need to draft a will, create a power of attorney document or provide instructions regarding the guardianship of your children or incapacitated adults, our firm will give you the legal support you deserve.
Knowledgeable attorney creates wills, power of attorneys, and advance directives
Even if the value of your estate falls below the federal tax threshold, failing to plan could cost family members a significant amount of money. Certain beneficiaries are required to pay inheritance tax under Kentucky law and confusion over a decedent’s intentions could lead to long, expensive disputes over probate. You can rely on Attorney Ashley Larmour regarding a wide array of estate concerns, including:
- Wills — Our firm prepares clear, enforceable wills that distribute property effectively and serve as a fitting legacy for our clients. Even if you already have a will in place, you might benefit from a review of the document to determine if any updates or revisions should be made.
- Probate matters — When it comes to probate matters, we help executors, administrators and beneficiaries who are seeking to settle an estate in accordance with the decedent’s instructions and pertinent law. Ms. Larmour handles critical tasks efficiently and provides knowledgeable counsel on various probate options, as well as disputes that arise over the validity of a will or an estate representative’s performance.
- Guardianships and conservatorships — We assist adults who are caring for incapacitated adults. In the event that an adult family member is incapable of addressing their needs, our firm can advise on a guardianship that would shift legal authority over personal care to you and/or a conservatorship that empowers you to handle their financial issues. Further, we can explain how guardianship of a child interplays with custody in family court.
- Advance directives — A durable power of attorney designates someone to handle your affairs in the event that you cannot due to injury or illness. You can state specific preferences regarding personal matters and medical treatment and create a living will that describes whether you want life-prolonging measures if your condition is terminal.
No matter how large or small your potential estate might be, our firm will give you the personal attention and skillful legal guidance you deserve.
