There are certain strict requirements for a will. You should have an attorney review your will to see if it meets legal requirements.
A trust provides security for your child or another minor. But what steps should you take to ensure that money will be properly handled after your death? James P. Peterson Attorney at Law, can sit down with you and determine what steps to take to protect that money from creditors. We can develop a trust that doesn't expire until age 25, or whatever age you decide.
Only used in a few states, a lady bird deed in Texas allows an individual to transfer their home at death to someone without a will or probate.
For most people, a simple will is sufficient. But high net worth individuals need custom estate planning and the means to legally avoid paying the estate tax. Practicing since 1986, attorney Peterson is highly experienced in both areas.
