Last Will and Testament

Last Will and Testament is a legal estate-planning document, created by a testator (person to whom the will belongs), that states detailed instructions on how the distribution of all financial accounts, real and personal property, as well as any other assets of the estate, shall be distributed among designated beneficiaries who are named in the will after the testator’s death. The testator’s property can be transferred upon their death to relatives, friends, charitable organizations, or whomever the testator determines should inherit certain property or assets. It is required by Missouri law for the document to be signed by the testator in the presence of two (2) competent witnesses. And though optional, a testator can have the will acknowledged by a state-authorized notary public to further verify its legality.

Revocable Trust

Revocable trusts are an effective way to avoid probate and provide for asset management in the event of incapacity. In addition, revocable trusts–sometimes called “living” trusts–are incredibly flexible and can achieve many other goals, including tax, long-term care, and asset protection planning.

Healthcare Power of Attorney

A healthcare power of attorney allows you to decide whether you want to have one or two doctors determine whether you are incapacitated before your agent can make decisions on your behalf.

Durable Financial Power of Attorney

A durable power of attorney form is used to legally appoint a representative to stand in the place of someone else (“principal”) for their financial affairs. The form only terminates if canceled or upon the death of the principal.

Probate Administration

Probate is the legal process that occurs after a person (the “decedent”) dies, with or without a valid will. If the decedent dies with a valid will, then the property is distributed according to the will. If a person dies without a will, then Missouri’s probate law dictates how the decedent’s assets are distributed.

Trust Litigation

Trust litigation involves legal disputes over a trust between beneficiaries and trustees. A trustee is responsible for distributing and administering assets held in the trust to beneficiaries in accordance with the terms of a trust.
