Estate planning allows you to provide for your family by creating a will, establishing a power of attorney or living will, making funeral arrangements in advance, and more. If you’re ready to begin the estate planning process, you need the help of an attorney with the knowledge to protect the interests of you and your loved ones. That’s where Jonathan Olson & Associates comes in.

Many people equate the phrase “estate planning” with writing a will. Although preparation of your will and establishing trusts are part of estate planning, there are other legal entities that fall into this category. For example, other aspects of estate planning include:

Long-term care provisions

If you plan ahead for long-term care, there are ways you can preserve your property for your use and for your heirs while at the same time qualifying for assistance for long-term nursing or assisted living care.

End-of-life arrangements

We help you prepare your Advance Directive that specifically articulates what type of end-of-life care you choose for yourself. You name someone you trust who will make health care decisions for you when you can no longer make them for yourself. As difficult as it may be talk about it, the written document expresses your wishes and the person you name is charged with seeing that your wishes are carried out.

Estate administration

When your loved one dies, the will must be filed with the probate court. The administrator of the estate is charged with making sure the terms of the will are carried out according to the wishes of the deceased. There are steps that must be taken in the probate court and we provide estate administrative services to be sure that all procedures are complied with. If anyone objects to the will or challenges its terms, we stand ready to meet the challenge and defend the will.

At Jonathan Olson & Associates, we treat you with the respect you deserve. Whether it’s planning for your family’s future, administering a loved one’s will, or working through the probate process, we are ready to help.  Call today to schedule your consultation.
