Change of Beneficiary
Fairfield County Estate Planning Attorney
When it comes to making sure that your wishes are complied with in regard
to the distribution of your estate, it is vital to consult with a
lawyer skilled in
estate planning and
probate matters. I am dedicated to helping business owners, families and individuals
understand the importance of estate planning and
business succession planning. When it comes to ensuring my client's best interests and desires
are legally protected for how their assets, property and wealth are to
be inherited, nothing is more important.
Probate court can be highly stressful and confusing for family and loved
ones already distraught from the loss of someone they cared about. By
having a detailed legal document in the form of a
last will and testament,
living trust, etc. you can help protect those you care about from painful drawn out
court proceedings and
probate administration. If you want a change of beneficiary enacted for a
will or trust or other asset distribution medium, you should consult with an
attorney as soon as possible.
Why get the help of a lawyer for a change of beneficiary?
To revise an existing document detailing distribution of your estate to
heirs and beneficiaries, it may be necessary to create a
codicil. Just as you have initially taken great care in ensuring your loved ones
are cared for when you pass away, it is equally important to be thorough
and exact when doing a change of beneficiary. There are many reasons that
an individual may wish to perform this legal action but no matter the
cause, it is vital that you have the help of a skilled attorney so any
changes are not questionable or up for interpretation or debate when it
comes time for the distribution of your estate. I have represented clients
in codicils, change of beneficiary and many other estate planning needs.
If you are considering making changes to who is a beneficiary of your
estate, I may be able to help.
