WILLS – LEGAL SERVICES

Serving Clients in Lake County, Chaffee County and Eagle County, Colorado

Most people know that a will is a formal legal document that leaves instructions for the settlement of someone’s estate after death. Even if your estate is modest, a will really is imperative. If you pass away without a will, the government – and not you or your loved ones – will decide how your assets are distributed. Experienced Colorado estate planning attorney Lindsey Parlin provides sound legal advice to clients regarding wills and related legal concerns. If you need a will prepared or revised, call her Leadville law offices today.

SAFEGUARDING YOUR FAMILY

If you are a parent, you need a will for something more important than your finances: your child. A will allows parents to name a legal guardian for their minor children in the event of a tragedy. A will should be revised whenever you marry, divorce, remarry, have a child or grandchild, adopt a child, suffer a disability, become widowed, or for any number of other reasons.

Even without major life-changes, it’s wise to review your will on a regular basis. Experienced estate planning attorney Lindsey Parlin will craft a will that meets your needs and safeguards your hopes and wishes for your loved ones. In addition to simple wills, Ms. Parlin can help clients create wills and trusts to meet special needs, including:

  • A Non-Trust Will: A will with no estate tax planning provisions. A non-trust will may not be best for anyone whose estate may be subject to the federal estate tax after death.
  • A Will with a Contingent Trust: Appropriate for those whose estates will not be subject to the federal estate tax if combined with a spouse’s estate. A will with contingent trusts gives a surviving spouse more tax planning options.
  • A Marital Deduction Will: For reducing estate taxes on assets and property received from a spouse’s estate. A marital deduction will allows a surviving spouse to receive property and assets as a gift not subject to taxation.
