Preserving your family's wealth for future generations
Whether you're planning the parameters of your future medical care or establishing support for loved ones upon your death, Thomas M. Alleman can help with all aspects of trusts and estates issues, including:
-Estate tax issues
-Choosing the appropriate executor
Securing your legacy:
You work hard for your family, so knowing that you have planned for their long-term well-being and financial security can bring you comfort. At Thomas M. Alleman, we thoroughly analyze your estate and strategize the best means of transferring your assets, minimizing taxes, establishing guardianship for your children, caring for your pets, supporting personal philanthropic causes and protecting your loved ones.
Draft your last will and testament:
A will is essential at every stage of your life. In addition, disability planning is necessary to set the parameters for medical intervention and financial management should you become incapacitated. This assures that when you are most vulnerable, your wishes will be honored.
Your last will provides the opportunity to distribute your property, establish care for your children and otherwise express your wishes upon your death. If you die without a will, the court determines to whom your property is distributed, who cares for your minor children and even what happens to your beloved pet decisions that might not reflect your desires. We can draft valid wills that ensure your intentions are honored.
Changing your will:
As your life changes, so might your estate plan. You may need to update your will throughout your life. We draft valid will updates that address changes in your financial situation, marital status, number of children, philanthropic interests and general lifestyle decisions.
Appointment of guardianship:
If you have minor children, your will allows you to make decisions about their future care. This is especially crucial if you are a single parent or if both parents die in a common incident. If you do not name a guardian, the court will appoint a guardian for your children and can make decisions adverse to your ultimate parenting goals.
