Your Advocate In Estate Planning And Estate Litigation
Few things are as important to securing your future and protecting your family as having a complete estate plan. At Thooft Law LLC, we understand that it’s easy to put this task off, and we are here to help you see that getting started doesn’t have to be difficult.
We can take you through the Minnesota estate planning process and, if you have lost a loved one, the probate process. Our lawyers will treat you with care as we develop your estate plan, administer a trust, challenge a will or probate an estate. Please speak with us to learn what we can do for you and your family. From our office in Bloomington, we represent people throughout the state.
Let’s Talk About Your Assets And Goals For The Future
You do not need sizable assets to create an estate plan. We can assist you with the specific documents you need, even if that is only a will. We can also help people with considerable or sophisticated assets. No matter your estate’s size, it’s important to remember that your estate plan can make your final wishes known and protect your children by naming guardians for them. You will ensure that your assets pass to the people you choose, as well, not to heirs and beneficiaries designated by the state.
Estate plans typically include one or more of the following:
- Wills and trusts
- Advance directives and living wills
- Powers of attorney for finances
- Health care powers of attorney
In addition, we can help you update your estate plan if things have changed since it was drafted. Did you go through a divorce? Do you have stepchildren due to remarriage? Do you wish to change the beneficiaries or executor or trustee? Have there been significant changes to your assets? These are all important reasons to update your estate plan.
We Can Help After A Loved One Passes On
Even when it goes smoothly, probate can be a lengthy, complex process. If you are an executor/personal representative, you may benefit from working with a probate attorney who can handle the process for you. We have the experience to take care of each step of probate so you don’t have to.
Sometimes there are challenges to estate plans during probate. We know how to manage probate and estate litigation issues such as:
- Will contests
- Trust litigation
- Undue influence
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Removal of trustees
- Mismanagement of assets
These are often complex matters, so it is a good idea to work with an attorney who has the knowledge and skill to guide you through them and the trial experience to fight for you in court.
