Most people think that a Will is enough to ensure that their wishes for their estate are followed upon death; however, a Living Trust can do just that while saving your heirs from expensive estate taxes and costs associated with Probate. Consult with one of our Estate Planning lawyers in Davenport, IA and find out how these important Estate Planning documents can eliminate uncertainties and save your family from excessive estate taxation.
Our Estate Planning attorneys of Davenport understand that in addition to grieving over the loss of a loved one, there’s the business of going over the loved one’s assets, and looking for the Will document if one was created. Then there’s the mandatory process of taking the Will to a Probate court to determine the validity of the Will. From there, a Probate court supervises the administration of the Will. If there is no Will, the Probate court decides how your estate is managed. Probate can be complicating, often making it months, even years before heirs receive benefits of the Will. Our Estate Planning attorneys can help with the Probate process.
