Wills & Estates
Planning for one’s death is one of the least enjoyable responsibilities in life; however, in order to make your intentions clear, it is important to outline them in a legal document. Failing to plan for your passing not only means your wishes may not be followed, but it could also put extreme emotional and mental pressure on surviving family members as they struggle to organize and distribute your estate. At Freeman & Nance, our attorneys work with clients to understand their circumstances and help them devise comprehensive wills and estate planning documents.
A guardianship is granted when an individual is unable to make sound decisions for themselves. Guardianships may be ordered in the case of a child who has lost their parents or if an adult suffers from a mental illness or condition that has incapacitated him. The complexities of these cases warrant the help of a reputable and professional attorney. As experienced guardianship lawyers, we understand both the emotional and legal aspects of these cases, making us uniquely qualified to resolve guardianship issues.
Wills are legal documents that describe how your assets will be distributed after your death. Wills can also specify guardianship of dependents. It is crucial to have a legally enforceable will before passing, but individuals can also benefit greatly from adopting living wills and designating a power of attorney. A living will specifies your wishes about certain medical procedures in the event you become incapacitated. A power of attorney grants an individual the authority to make financial and medical decisions on your behalf if you are unable to do so on your own.
There are a number of reasons an individual may want to legally change his or her name. Unfortunately, the process is not as easy as just filling out a form. Freeman & Nance can get individuals and their dependents’ names legally changed.
