Preserving Your Future Today
No two families have the same property, the same children or the same priorities. When it comes to estate planning, it’s important to select an attorney who will take the time to understand your family and your goals.
At Fuller & Quigg, we take a comprehensive approach to estate planning. We will carefully listen to you so we can create an estate plan that will accomplish your goals. We serve clients in Decatur and throughout Central Illinois. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
An estate plan consists of several parts, which work together to accomplish your goals. These parts include:
- A will, which allows you to plan for the efficient transfer of your assets to the people you want to have them upon your death. Your will can also name a guardian for minor children, if you and your spouse should both die before your children reach age 18.
- Trusts can be used to achieve goals such as protecting minor beneficiaries, minimizing taxes and caring for a family member with special needs.
- A durable power of attorney for property allows you to name a trusted person to step into your shoes and make financial decisions if you are incapacitated.
- An advance health care directive and living will allows you to let family members and health care providers know your wishes with regard to artificial life support, if you are in a vegetative state with no hope of recovery.
We will evaluate your assets, your family members and your goals. Then we will take the time to explain your options and answer your questions. Sometimes the simplest estate planning measures can make the biggest difference for your family members. For example, some people spend thousands of dollars creating a trust they don’t need. Others put their families through costly and emotionally wrenching legal proceedings because they failed to make their wishes known through an inexpensive advance health care directive.
In addition to estate planning, our lawyer provides elder law and probate services.
