Westfield Estate Planning Attorney

Ensure Your Loved Ones Are Cared for the Way You Want

Confronting how your estate will be handled when you are gone can be very stressful. There are many options, and it can be hard to decide what is best for you. At Stoesz & Stoesz, LLC, our Westfield estate planning attorneys have more than 60 years of combined experience to help guide you through the process. It’s best to set things up ahead of time to avoid expensive delays in the legal process of probate that proves the will, pays the bills, and divides the assets.

In Indiana, you may be able to prepare things ahead of time to avoid a costly probate process.

The following can help you avoid probate:

  • Create a living trust: Like a will, you create a document detailing your assets and then make sure to set it up with you as the trustee with a named successor
  • Joint tenancy: The ownership is set up with a “right of survivorship”
  • Tenancy by entirety, which can be used for a married couple’s real estate
  • Bank accounts set up with someone named to be Payable-on-Death (POD)
  • Automobiles, bank accounts, and stocks set up as Transfer-on-Death (TOD)
  • Tenancy in common: Property goes into the deceased estate, so it could end up in probate

    There is peace of mind that comes with having the decisions made and things legally set up properly. But, life can sometimes throw you a curve. Or, maybe you need help with a family member. Our trusted and skilled estate planning attorneys in Westfield can help you with that, too.

    Our firm can help you with:

    • Administering a trust and giving legal advice to trustees and beneficiaries
    • Setting up a legal guardianship, which is useful when someone is not able to care for themselves
    • Creating a conservatorship, which can be used when someone needs help in managing day-to-day life or financial matters
    • Navigating probate when you will be using that route

      When you arrive at our office, you are likely to have a goal in mind for your estate plan. We can help you reach that goal. Avoid any costly errors by ensuring the planning is carried out correctly to protect your assets and your family.
