Oswego Estate Planning Attorney for Wills, Trusts and Powers of Attorney

Being prepared for the future can not only help you avoid uncertainty and give you the confidence to face any challenges that may arise, but it can also ensure that your wishes will be followed while you are alive and after you are gone. A well-crafted estate plan can provide peace of mind and protection for you and your loved ones, and it can help to avoid costs, delays, and disagreements later on.

While estate planning may seem like a daunting task, an experienced attorney can help you to navigate the different aspects of this process, including creating documents and taking steps to protect against financial losses. At Gateville Law Firm, we can work with you to make sure your wishes will be carried out and that your loved ones will be taken care of in the event of your death or incapacity. We will make the effort to understand your unique circumstances and goals so that we can create a personalized estate plan that meets all of your needs.

Estate Planning Services in Oswego

Our firm assists with multiple aspects of estate planning, including:

  • Wills - Your last will and testament is a legal document that outlines how your assets should be distributed to your heirs after you die. This document can also be used to name a guardian for your minor children. We can help you make sure your will is valid and enforceable while avoiding any confusion or uncertainty about how your affairs should be handled.
  • Trusts - When you create a trust, you will establish a legal entity that can hold and manage your assets. Trusts can be created for multiple purposes, including asset protection, distributing assets to beneficiaries, donating assets to charity, and providing for loved ones with special needs. We can assist with the creation and management of living trusts and other types of trusts, and we can also help you determine whether joint or individual trusts will be best for your situation.
  • Powers of Attorney - A power of attorney (POA) is a legal agreement that provides another person with the authority to make decisions on your behalf regarding financial matters or medical treatment. This can be useful if you become incapacitated and are unable to make decisions for yourself. We can help you create powers of attorney that will give your chosen agent the specific powers that you need them to have while ensuring that your best interests will always be protected.
  • Advance Healthcare Directives - These directives are legal documents that allow you to express your wishes regarding your medical care in the event that you are unable to make decisions for yourself. Advance healthcare directives can include a living will, which outlines the types of medical treatment you do or do not want to receive in the event that you become terminally ill and incapacitated, as well as do-not-resuscitate orders, mental health declarations, or other related documents.
  • Legacy Planning - In addition to distributing your assets to your beneficiaries, you may consider how you can pass on your values to future generations. Along with the creation of estate planning documents such as wills and trusts, you may also take steps to educate your heirs about your financial affairs and instill your core values in them. Business succession plans, charitable giving, and family trusts may play a role in legacy planning, and we can help determine the best options for you.
