Probate In Arkansas
The probate process is often overwhelming and may seem daunting at the outset. However, it is simply a matter of the courts verifying the estate of a deceased loved one, and deciding how the assets are going to be handled and distributed. While complications may arise, our firm strives to take the complexity out of the process for clients. We work to see that your goals are met whenever possible and that you understand how the laws are being applied to the administration of the estate.
Why Have A Will?
The more thorough the estate planning documents, the more efficiently the probate process typically moves along. This is only one of the many reasons to have a will. When you create your will, sometimes referred to as a last will and testament, you are making a legal record of your wishes for how your assets and legacy are to be handled when you are gone. Without one, your estate will be subject to distribution according to state laws, which may not be in line with your goals for the distribution of your estate.
Powers Of Attorney
In the event you become incapacitated or otherwise unable to communicate your own wishes, it is important to have someone designated as your power of attorney. This legal designation allows the person to make medical and financial decisions for you as long as you are unable to do so.
