Skilled Asset Distribution Lawyers in Oklahoma
Understandably, many people avoid thinking about the future. At Cheadle & Associates in Tulsa, Oklahoma, we encourage clients to deal with unexpected circumstances head on. At any point, an illness or catastrophic accident could cut your life short or limit your mental capacity. We want to help you avoid any circumstances which may leave your loved ones in the dark about how you would like your finances and personal matters handled.
Our firm's living will lawyers in Tulsa offer comprehensive estate planning solutions to help control how your assets are distributed in the future to your loved ones or even a favorite charity. We want your family to avoid probate through establishing a revocable living trust or living will. Without either one, the probate court will be forced to distribute your assets when you die, not necessarily according to your wishes.
For more than 30 years, attorney Grant Cheadle has helped clients develop effective estate plans to provide for loved ones and allocate how their assets will be distributed. A key part of his work includes helping clients avoid probate through establishing revocable trusts. Contact our law firm today to learn more about how we can help you plan for the future.
Establishing Revocable Living Trusts
When you select our law firm, you will work directly with attorney Cheadle. He will help you understand the benefits of revocable trusts and other types of trusts. Similar to wills, a revocable trust can be modified at any point. As you acquire new assets or sell off some of your property, you can update your trust. You will remain in complete control of the trust, so the right people remain in line to gain your assets.
At the same time, the revocable trust will help your beneficiaries avoid probate. We are committed to making sure your assets are transferred properly. When we create a revocable trust, we will also prepare a pour-over will so that your assets are automatically poured into the trust for trust administration purposes. We will work closely with you to make sure all fronts are covered.
Creating Living Wills
At Cheadle & Associates, we work with clients to develop simple wills. This is an opportunity for clients to designate how much inheritance they would like their loved ones to acquire. When working with clients to establish simple wills, we are also available to help them name a heath care power of attorney. This person would ideally be a close family friend or relative given the responsibility to make important decisions about your health, if you do not have the mental capacity to do so for yourself.
We are also available to help you create a living will, which outlines your desires regarding life support and end-of-life care. Similarly, we can help you appoint a financial power of attorney to make important financial decisions, if you become unable to for yourself.
