Our Practice is focused on the needs of the family through all stages of life.
Estates, Trusts Conservatorships, Planning
Your estate is more than just your money. You have a lot of decisions to make, who will care for your children when you are gone? How shoudl they be cared for? How can my investment plan work with my estate to maximize what I transfer to the next generation and how do I protect it all ?
The probate court system is made up of several courts. There is your local court, often meeting in town hall and the regional children's courts. While teh courts will make decisions if need be, it is always better to have things set the way you want before needing the court.
The more that can be done before you pass the less that winds up being charged probate, attorney and other fees.
This is why we urge everyone to get a will.
WIth the passing of several sets of new laws in Connecticut the status of this area of law is ev er changing.
As the local attorney for various self defense insurance companies we are familiar with the changes, and the unsettled areas of these changes.
Your questions answered for a minimal fee or set up an on going retainer for questions. We also do NFA trusts, which are now difficult to use in Connecticut but make a great tie in to your will.
No matter how often it is said it is true that nothing is a devastating to a person as death and divorce. Even if you are ready for it, want it, even need it for your own physical and mental safety, it is hard.
The courts have gone a long way to making it easier, however when there is conflict or misunderstanding the path can get difficult. Often people find that what they thought was going to be a simple agreement isn't or they feel ambushed by the other spouse and their attorney.
