Hedtke Law Group has decades of combined Estate Planning experience. Estate planning protects your personal assets from the claims of potential creditors by the preferential holding of assets in forms that are exempt from judgment execution. This planning involves the use of irrevocable offshore and domestic asset protection trusts with trust protector provisions.
Every estate plan should include a will. If the value of the estate is small, then a simple will may suffice to transfer your assets. If the value of the estate is larger and real estate is involved, it is probably better to have your assets held in trust. This can accomplish many different goals, such as avoiding probate, lowering estate taxes, and directing the distribution of your property upon your death.
Child custody, or visitation, can take many forms, including: Sole Legal Custody (in which one parent is entitled to make important decisions in a child's life), Joint Legal Custody (in which both parents are entitled to make major decisions concerning the child's education, religious upbringing and medical care), Joint Physical Custody (in which each parent shares time with the child. Physical custody usually coincides with joint legal custody. Decisions regarding education, religion and medical care will typically be made by both parents), and Primary Physical Custody (in which the children reside primarily with one parent).
Our firm's core practice is in estate planning, tax planning, trusts & estates, and asset protection. Because real estate is such an important part of many clients' estates, creating an estate plan requires legal restructuring of the ownership of the real estate.
