If not, you should consider getting one now. Even if you have a will, it is not enough.
It is the single most important thing you can do.
An estate plan can help you to avoid probate, if done correctly.
Think about it: Would you send your child to the shop and tell them to just "pick out whatever they want for dinner". Probably not. You would send them with a well thought out shopping list, and tell them to ONLY get what is on the list.
The same goes for estate planning. A comprehensive estate plan is like, well, a shopping list. It tells those you leave behind exactly what your intentions and desires are, for your estate, after you are gone.
If you do not have an estate plan, your estate will be tied up for several months in Probate court upon your death. This costs both time and money which could be left for your family to enjoy.
At All Legal Solutions, our Attorneys and Lawyers specialise in estate planning. We have helped thousands of clients over the years from all over the downriver area, with an estate plan.
Estate planning is about peace of mind. For you now, and your loved ones later.
The common misconception is that people believe they do not need a will. Nothing could be further from the truth.
In fact, everyone should have a Last Will and Testament, properly drafted, and executed, so that in the event of their death, there are no questions about what they wanted done with their property, and assets.
The peace of mind you gain from taking the time to plan ahead will not only allow YOU to breathe easier, but when you do pass, the grief your loved ones face will not be compounded, and they will breathe a little easier, knowing your wishes.
A Trust is a legal document in which you specify that a person, or person(s) have your express authority to act on your behalf. This can be done for a variety of reasons and to handle a multitude of situations.
There are many different types of trust, and each one fulfills a specific purpose.
Your attorney will discuss your specific situation with you, and recommend the correct trust, depending on your wishes.
Each situation is different, and for this reason we offer Free Consultations with an Attorney to all new clients.

When someone dies, in order to legally disperse of that persons assets, whether tangible, or intangible, it is necessary to open a case in the Probate Court of Jurisdiction.
In this procedure, all assets are listed, and any legal documents such as a Last Will and Testament, or any type of Trust which was executed by the now deceased, will be entered into and used to ensure their wishes are met.
During this time, notices are also published in local publications such as newspapers, and the internet, to allow any creditors an opportunity to collect any debts owed by the deceased against their estate.
This can be a very different process depending on the planning which was done prior to death, as described above.
