Wills and Trusts

Jefferson City Wills and Trusts Lawyers

Planning for the Future

What makes more sense for you, a will or a trust? Perhaps both. The answer to that question can only be provided after a thorough review of your situation and your goals.

At Hanrahan & Nacy, our lawyers start by listening. Perhaps your goals are fairly general: You want to make certain your assets pass to your children as smoothly as possible. Perhaps you have more specific goals: You are buying a piece of real estate and you want something unique done with it after you pass away. No matter how simple or complex your goals are, you can be confident in our ability to create the right combination of wills and trusts for you.

What is the difference between a will and a trust? A will is simply a direction to the probate court as to how your property should pass after your death. A trust is more flexible and can have many advantages in certain situations. It may not require the attention of the probate court at all.

The Option That Is Right for You

Your estate plan may involve a will that pours over into a trust. It may involve complicated multilevel trusts with a variety of conveyances associated with them, depending on the needs of your beneficiaries. It may involve testamentary trusts, bypass trusts, limited trusts, special needs trusts or other types of trusts. The key is that it is designed specifically for you. That is what you will get when you choose our attorneys to assist with your estate plan.
