ESTATE PLANNING

Estate planning is the preparation of tasks that serve to manage an individual's assets in the event of their incapacitation or death. Specifically, estate planning allows an individual to decide exactly who will be in charge of their estate, who will benefit from their estate, and to what extent. Estate planning also ensures that the estate will not be destroyed by taxes imposed on the transfer of assets at death. Moody & Associates has the expertise to handle the administration of estates of all forms and sizes. 

Moody & Associates has the expertise to handle the administration of estates of all manners. We work with our clients to ensure their wishes are stated clearly in their Last Will and Testament or Trust, and any other Estate Planning documents necessary to secure the legacy of the client. To learn more about our estate planning services, CLICK HERE.

PROBATE MATTERS

A Probate is the official validation of a Will. Probates occur both with and without a Will. A Probate is usually only required if the decedent owned assets in their name alone, however, if you are unsure and have questions about whether the probate process is necessary in your situation, you should contact us to schedule a consultation with one of our attorneys.

Even if a probate is not required, you should speak with an attorney to ensure there are not additional steps that need to be taken. Moody & Associates is experienced in all Probate Matters, including Contested Estates. Whether you are Executor of the Will or Administrator of the Estate, rest assured that the Moody & Associates Law team will make the probating process as smooth as possible for you and your loved ones.
