Estate Planning Attorney in North Carolina

We often deal with clients who believe their estate plan need only have a simple will to ensure their property is passed on to heirs. However, while this may be true for some who have a simple estate, there is far more to planning your estate than a will.

North Carolina residents in Vance, Granville, Franklin, or Warren County should carefully review their estate plan and make sure they have made allowances for situations which may come up unexpectedly. For example, what happens if you are in an accident and unable to take care of basic items like paying your bills, making decisions about your health care, or caring for your family financially. We know that not every family maintains joint finances, which means it is imperative to have financial powers of attorney in place in the event you are unable to take care of these issues.

Your estate plan is important and should be customized to meet your needs. We will take the time to understand your current financial status, as well as take into consideration your overall family structure. Only by taking these steps can we ensure your estate plan is appropriate. Since no two people have the same asset structure, no two people have the same estate planning needs.

Not everyone’s estate is simple which may mean a living will, or gift deed transfers are a better option than a simple will. We will review your entire financial picture and help you devise an estate plan that meets your needs and the needs of your family. If you currently have an estate plan in place but changes in your life have made it imperative to review and modify your plan we are here to help. Contact the Henderson, North Carolina law offices of Baskerville & Baskerville, PLLC and let us review your current estate plan and make sure it still accomplishes your goals, or let us help you create an estate plan that meets your goals for your family.
