Estate planning services
Estate planning involves more than just dividing your assets among your loved ones. It can also involve establishing a trust to structure use of your assets and prevent the payment of unnecessary taxes. Below are some highlights of the services you will receive when you retain us to help plan your estate:
- Establishment of living trusts — A living trust is a useful tool for an estate of any size to help avoid probate. Under this arrangement, your assets are placed in trust and utilized for your benefit while you are alive. When you die, they are transferred to the beneficiaries whom you designate without the need for court supervision or approval.
- Drafting a will — We can assist you in drafting a will and providing directions on how you wish your property to be divided after your death. If you die without a will, your property will be distributed according to Oklahoma state law so it is in your interest to have a carefully drafted will that specifies how you would like your property distributed after your death.
- Advising you on tax implications and minimizing tax liability for you and your heirs — Mr. Meyers, with his experience as an attorney and a certified public accountant, keeps abreast of tax laws and can advise you effectively on the tax implications for the various options for dividing your property. He can help you to select the most cost-effective property division mechanism that best suits your needs.
