Estate Planning & Probate

Planning for the Future

As an adult, you have probably spent most of your married life taking care of your family. You may have been concerned with working hard to bring home a good paycheck, cooking dinner for your family or offering your children the protection and guidance they needed.

Although you have been able to do that thus far, it is important to create a plan so that your family is still protected when you are no longer able to care for them yourself. By visiting attorney Margaret M. Hayes, you can create the estate plan you need for your future. Contact us online or call 860-589-4121 to schedule your confidential consultation.

A Complete Estate Planning Package

When clients contact us for estate planning guidance, we offer a package of estate planning documents. Creating a full estate plan allows you to thoroughly dictate your wishes and how you would like your affairs handled. We draft and review a variety of estate planning documents for our clients, including:

  • Wills
  • Living wills
  • Trusts
  • Appointment of healthcare representative
  • Power of attorney
  • Designation of standby guardian

We spend time counseling our clients to think about who they are naming as their personal representative and power of attorney. We help clients think about all the possible outcomes, and address those that could have a negative impact on the estate or your family.

The Probate Process

After a loved one dies, all their assets must be identified and transferred. Our lawyer works with administrators and executors throughout the probate process, offering assistance with:

  • Filing papers with probate courts
  • Attending probate court hearings
  • Filing estate tax returns
  • Settling outstanding debt

Work with an attorney who will help you navigate the legal system from start to finish. Schedule your confidential consultation in our Bristol, Connecticut office by contacting us online or by calling 860-589-4121.
