Estate Planning Services
What is Estate Planning?
End-of-life affairs are understandably a sensitive subject, but estate planning helps provide peace of mind for you and your loved ones, allowing you personal control over your estate rather than relying on the default laws of the State of Kansas.
So what is an estate plan? It’s a comprehensive set of legal documents and strategies outlining how you want your assets to be managed, distributed, and protected during and after your life. More than a simple list on paper, it addresses your specific financial, personal, and healthcare matters and ensures that the plan will be carried out effectively and efficiently.
Whether you know exactly what you want or aren’t sure where to begin, we are here to help.
We can help you draft any important documents you may need to create your plan, including the following:
- Assignment of Personal Property
- Durable Power of Attorney
- Estate Administration
- HIPPA Release
- Guardian/Conservator Nomination
- Schedule of Assets
- Trust Administration
- Probate Without a Will
- Probate Administration
- Pour Over Wills
- Revocable Trusts
- Irrevocable Trusts
- Family and Generation-Skipping Trusts
- Life Insurance Trusts
- Charitable Trusts
- Special Needs Trusts
- Transfer on Death Documents
- Do Not Resuscitate Orders (DNRs)
- Living Wills
- Health Care Powers of Attorney
- Financial Powers of Attorney
We also can help update your existing estate plan in the case of important life changes, such as adoption, remarriage, divorce, and nontraditional family updates.
When you schedule an initial consultation with us, we send you the questionnaire below that provides us with vital estate planning information, such as family and assets. This must be completed before the initial consultation; it is this information that creates the body of your estate plan.
