Count on us when you establish trusts, or you draft your last will and testament in Jefferson City, TN, to protect your assets. The laws of Tennessee accord every person the privilege of directing the disposition of their property, both real and personal, after death. Usually, this document is either a last will and testament or trust. If, on the other hand, a person dies and fails to leave directions about the management or division of their property, it is administered pursuant to the law of intestacy. Things can be confusing at times, but when you contact us for elder law guidance, we can help sort them out with you.
Plan for Your Passing
There are many reasons to make a last will and testament or trust. First, it gives your family and friends peace of mind knowing what you desire to happen upon death. Second, it allows you to choose a representative to wrap up your affairs. Third, it allows you to choose a guardian and provide for your children. Similarly, trusts have those benefits in addition to the benefits of avoiding probate costs and administration. Trusts also provide more privacy because the documents are not filed with the probate court in most cases.
