You Need An Estate Plan
Let our attorneys at Jamison Associates guide your first steps toward planning your family’s future. Having a proper estate plan is crucial to ensuring that your wishes will be carried out in the event of your death and to minimize your families confusion or conflict regarding the distribution of your estate.
When a person dies in Missouri, his or her estate must go through probate, which is a process overseen by a probate court. If the decedent leaves a will directing how his or her property should be distributed after death, the probate court must determine if the will should be admitted to probate and given legal effect.
Experienced Guidance For Estate Planning And Probate
If the decedent dies intestate-without leaving a will- the court appoints a personal representative to distribute the decedent’s property according to the laws of Descent and Distribution. These laws direct the distribution of assets based on hereditary succession.
Without legal documentation of your wishes regarding disbursement of wealth or property, your family could spend years in probate court to determine the fate of your estate. Don’t leave questions unanswered. Give your family the closure and security they deserve.
