Mooresville Estate Planning Attorneys
Providing Caring & Capable Representation since 2004. Serving Iredell, Mecklenburg & the Surrounding Counties.
Everyone has an estate whether they realize it or not. Some estates are bigger than others, often involving homes, vehicles, other real estate, investment portfolios, life insurance, retirement accounts, boats, art, jewelry, and more. Others are much simpler and less involved. However, no matter the size or monetary value of your estate, if you fail to provide instructions as to how all its various parts are to be handled should you become disabled or pass away, your control will be lost. Someone else whom you do not know, such as a judge, will likely determine its distribution.
At the Law Office of Natalie J. Miller, we don’t want that to happen. We are here to ensure that your wishes and objectives are honored when you are no longer able to express them. In fact, estate planning instruments will become your voice for how you want your estate to be distributed, thereby protecting your legacy and the future of your loved ones. Estate planning will also provide for this while seeking to minimize the amount of taxes, court fees, and legal fees required at the time your estate is distributed.
What Is Involved in an Estate Plan?
Estate plans do more than merely designate how your assets will be passed on. Many issues can be resolved in advance with such plans through the use of various legal instruments.
