Guidance Through North Carolina Estate Planning
Estate planning is something that everyone needs to do. However, it can be confusing because of all the available options and the rules involved. What can you put into your will, and what does not belong? Do you need a trust? If so, what type of trust? Whom do you trust to handle your final affairs?

Led by our attorney, Lawrence Tickle, we help people in and around Franklin County, North Carolina, set up and adjust their estate plans. We will clear up any confusion you have and help you establish a customized plan to suit your final wishes.
Finding The Right Estate Planning Tools For You
Among the estate plan documents we can advise you on and fill out for you, there are:
- Revocable and irrevocable trusts
- Special needs trusts
- Advance health care directives
- Powers of attorney
These documents serve two purposes: to make it clear how you want to distribute your assets after you pass away, and help you keep control of your medical care and financial decisions in case you become too sick or injured to speak for yourself. For example, in your will, you name your beneficiaries and specify how much each of them will receive. Meanwhile, you can use an advance health care directive to make it clear how much medical intervention you want in life-threatening situations.
When Your Family Changes, So Does Your Estate Plan
There are rules you must follow or your estate plan will not be legally valid. For your peace of mind, we will make sure everything is taken care of properly. And as the years pass, we will review your estate plan with you to make sure it still reflects your goals. For example, we will make sure to remove your former spouse as a beneficiary after divorce. Our estate planning assistance will make sure your family is taken care of no matter what happens.
