Our Practice Areas
Trust-Based Estate Planning
Trust-based estate planning is used in situations when you have estate planning goals or personal needs that cannot be accomplished with only a will. Trusts can help a family avoid probate, can keep the handling of family legacy money completely private, can provide the ability to manage monies for child beneficiaries, and much more. Call the Meyring Law Firm in Cobb County now, and a member of our trust and estate legal team will help you get started with your family trust.
Self-prepared and program-generated wills are often ineffective, but you can have confidence that your objectives will be achieved with our Firm’s attorney-prepared wills. Our attorney helps support the will that is presented to the probate court if someone challenges it, and the Firm will also contest wills for clients who need to challenge the validity of questionable wills.
Probate of Estates
Probate is the legal process by which the court designates an Executor or Administrator and oversees the transfer of property and assets from the decedent to the surviving family and will beneficiaries. We specialize in assisting the decedent’s representative with the requirements for proper filing and processing, reporting to the court, and resolving asset distribution issues.
Our Firm represents beneficiaries, heirs, executors, administrators, and claimants when it is necessary to litigate to resolve issues in the probate of an estate. Estate litigation includes a wide range of legal battles relating to the surrounding estate litigation, including challenges to the validity of a will, fraud in the execution of a will, and the legitimacy of will beneficiaries and claimants to the estate.
Estate planning is the general term for the assistance given to clients by our legal team to plan for any situation of the client’s incapacity or death. An estate plan can be as simple as a simple will or it can be more complete with the addition of financial power of attorney and advance directive for health care documents. If you want to ensure that your family and legacy are secure in the future, you should take action to start estate planning by calling us today.
Powers of Attorney
If you become incapacitated through illness, injury, or aging, you can appoint another person to handle your finances. The power of attorney document is one of the most powerful and useful estate planning devices because the only alternative to the power of attorney is a conservatorship, which costs the client much more time and expense than a power of attorney.
Advance Directives for Health Care
Advance directives for health care are legal documents that specify advance medical instructions regarding your preferred medical treatment and your final wishes for life support. Formerly the Living Will, in the Advance Directive, you name a trusted agent and empower him or her to direct your wishes as stated in your document.
Guardianships & Conservatorships
Guardianships and Conservatorships are legal proceedings in the probate court that allow one person to ask for control of another person’s finances and health care. Our Firm can help with Guardianship and Conservatorship proceedings in the least stressful and most time-efficient manner for the family involved.
