In planning their estate, individuals must take into consideration their family, their marital situation, their children and their businesses. It is important to understand the implications of death on any of those. It is also important to consider the implications of divorce, child custody, child support, and trusts and annuities on an estate plan.
Members of the military must also consider their membership in the military as to how it affects their estate. Our firm maintains a strong commitment to helping those in the military with their legal and estate needs.
