Rolling Meadows Estate Planning Lawyer

Establishing an effective and complete estate plan will protect your financial and health care interests and allow you to provide for your loved ones in the way you see fit. With proper planning, federal estate taxes can be eliminated and probate can be avoided in certain circumstances. In 2010, the federal government imposes no estate tax. While this may provide a benefit to many, further changes result in tax difficulties concerning adjustment to basis and asset valuation. In 2011, the federal estate tax reverts to thresholds not seen in years.

Estate Planning Tools

The tools available to available to help you achieve your estate planning goals are varied and complex. We help clients with everything from basic plans involving simple wills, powers of attorney for health care and property, and HIPAA authorization documents, to complex plans involving credit shelter trusts, OBRA trusts to facilitate Medicaid eligibility while protecting assets, and QPRT trusts to potentially avoid estate and gift tax liability when passing your home to your children. If there are questions regarding ownership of property, we can assist you in determining the current title of property, as well as taking steps to re-title property to conform to your wishes in estate planning and probate.

No plan is appropriate for everyone. We will take the time to understand your wishes and your situation in order to tailor the right plan for you. When there is no will, the state decides who gets the assets left behind. Many people are shocked to learn how the state's intestate statutes would divide their property in the absence of a will.

It takes time and dedication to master any skill. Your lawyer must understand the benefits and drawbacks of each estate planning device to create the best possible plan for you. Pour-over wills, living trusts, irrevocable trusts, special needs trusts, insurance trusts, asset re-titling and countless other possibilities must be considered to maximize the benefit of your plan. We have the experience and information you need to protect your interests and your legacy.
