Lincolnton Estate Planning Lawyers

Helping You Decide | Honoring Your Wishes

As we age, we naturally think about end of life issues. We contemplate life-saving medical treatments, long-term health issues and who should inherit our possessions and assets. This is when many of us think about a will. At The Jonas Law Firm, P.L.L.C., our Lincolnton estate planning attorneys have seen firsthand how wills, powers of attorney and health care directives can help others honor your wishes and help you decide end-of-life issues.

As you contemplate your estate planning needs, consider this:

  • A self-written will must meet statutory requirements or the court will not accept it.
  • A hand-written will is open to a lawsuit by other family members.
  • Wills are not just for the elderly. A young couple with children should make their wishes known regarding the guardianship of their children and other matters.
  • If you were to die without a will, the state of North Carolina will make all of the decisions about your property, your children and your personal items.

Estate planning puts you in control of your end-of-life issues. They help you make decisions and help others honor your wishes.

Denver Probate and Will Disputes Attorneys

If one of your family members has passed away, we can help. If there is a will, our law firm can help you through probate for testamentary. If there was no will, we can help you through probate administration. These are emotional times and can be time consuming for those who are unfamiliar with the workings of the state and probate.

Our law firm also aids family members or heirs when there is a contested will, trust dispute or other matter, which may require a civil lawsuit to settle satisfactorily.
