If You’re Ready To Plan For The Future, You Can Trust Us To Simplify The Process & Preserve Your Legacy, Because We Know The Road Ahead.

Estate planning is the process of legally determining what will happen to your assets and your family during your lifetime and upon your death, and it is something that everyone needs to do. No one is promised tomorrow, and none of us know what the future holds! You don’t have to be wealthy or retired to arrange your affairs. If you have property or dependents, you should ideally have a comprehensive, attorney-drafted estate plan in place as soon as possible.

Many people put off this important legal task because it can seem overwhelming to try to plan for the future, or they think they’ll have more time later on in life, but procrastinating only leaves your assets and your family at risk. Our experienced Georgia estate planning attorney has created hundreds of effective plans for clients over the last 30 years; our firm can give you all the legal tools you need to ensure that your loved ones will be well taken care of, no matter what happens to you. Call Fouts Law Group today to schedule a free consultation and learn more about your options!

We Can Help You Get Your Affairs In Order & Save Your Family Time, Money, & Stress!

If you don’t take the time to create the right legal documents and make your wishes known (and legally valid!) now, then in the event that you pass away or become incapacitated unexpectedly, Georgia state laws – not your intentions, or your family’s needs – will govern what happens to your hard-earned assets and to your family. Your estate will likely end up in probate court, and your family will have to spend months or years and thousands or tens of thousands of dollars before they can close your estate and receive what is left of their inheritance. That’s not the kind of legacy you want to leave behind!

Most people think that they only need to have a last will and testament in order to keep control of their estate, but a will won’t avoid probate, and is limited in the scope of protection it can provide. An estate plan should also include other documents, such as:

  • A trust (a fiduciary relationship that secures your assets)
  • A power of attorney (gives someone else the power to manage your assets)
  • An advance directive (clarifies your wishes for medical care in the event of incapacitation)
  • A health care proxy (designates someone you trust to make medical decisions on your behalf if you cannot)
  • Beneficiary designations (transfers assets directly to heirs upon your death)
  • Insurance policy information
  • And more

Some people think that hiring an estate planning attorney is an unnecessary expense and attempt to draft a plan on their own, with the help of advice or templates they find online. However, legal information from the internet is almost certainly generic – not personalized to your unique situation and not compliant with Georgia laws – and may be outdated. Without an attorney on your side, your plan may not be upheld by the court and may not accomplish everything (or anything) that you or your family thought that it would! Since your life, family dynamics, and financial circumstances are not like everyone else’s, your estate plan shouldn’t be like everyone else’s either. Fouts Law Group will take the time to get to know you and get an accurate picture of your goals so we can design a custom plan that you and your family can have confidence in!
