Wytheville Estate Planning Lawyer
An Overview of Estate Planning Services We Offer in Wytheville, Virginia
For the vast majority of people, they will form the basis of a comprehensive estate plan. Regardless of how many assets you currently have or the structure of your family, you can benefit from a professionally drafted, customized will. Indeed, every adult in Virginia should have a professionally drafted will in place. Unfortunately, the AARP reports that nearly 6 in 10 American adults currently lack a will. At The Jackson Law Group, our Wythe County estate planning attorneys will help you craft a will that is best for your unique situation. You are never too young to write a will. We help clients draft wills that are valid, effective, and easily amended to account for the ever-changing circumstances of life.
There are many myths and misconceptions out there regarding trusts and trust planning—contrary to what some believe, trusts are not only useful for the very wealthy. Through a well-designed trust, you distribute assets and property to your heirs in a cost-effective and efficient manner. Under Virginia law (Code of Virginia § 64.2-778), trustees have specific responsibilities and obligations. Our law firm can help you understand exactly how trusts work. If trust is the best option for you and your family, we will help you set one up.
Powers of Attorney
Beyond planning for what will happen to your assets and property, you also need to plan for what will happen to you in the unfortunate event that you are no longer able to deal with your own affairs. By putting powers of attorney in place, you can give a trusted family member or loved one the legal tools that they need to protect your rights and interests. We assist clients with all types of powers of attorney, from durable power of attorney to medical power of attorney. If you have any questions about setting up powers of attorney or powers of attorney in general, please call our attorneys in Wytheville, VA today.
