Wheaton Estate Planning Lawyer

Estate and Tax Planning in Wheaton, Illinois

Effective estate planning documents clearly convey one's final wishes in a legally enforceable manner. A property prepared will, trust, or power of attorney can reduce the potential for legal disputes among relatives, caretakers and beneficiaries, and can minimize the tax consequences of any asset transfers.

To create an estate plan that addresses your needs, call Carol A. Nolan, Attorney at Law today at 630-668-6600 . Ms. Nolan helps seniors, disabled adults, young parents, and their families plan for all contingencies. Although many people want to put off estate planning until later in life, it really is important for adults of all ages.

Preparing a Wide Range of Estate Planning Documents

Estate planning documents must be highly individualized - each estate plan must be uniquely tailored to the circumstances of the person creating the plan. Ms. Nolan provides personal services for clients to allow her to effectively create these highly specialized estate plans.

For example, as an older person you may be concerned about protecting your assets if you need to enter a nursing home. Ms. Nolan frequently creates OBRA special needs trusts, which often allow individuals to qualify for Medicaid assistance regardless of their personal finances. As a parent of a disabled child, you may be concerned about protecting your child's future - a third-party special needs trust can provide funds for your disabled child without sacrificing eligibility for government benefits.

Ms. Nolan also prepares more basic estate planning documents, such as wills, living wills, powers of attorney for healthcare and finances, and revocable living trusts. Each of these documents provides guidance for asset distribution and health care concerns in the event that you become unable to make your wishes clear.
