Our estate planning attorneys at McKinnish Law Group have decades of combined experience helping clients in the Knoxville area establish estate plans that protect their assets and loved ones. We know that it is never easy to think about a time when you won’t have control over your decisions.
A Tailored Plan To Protect Your Loved Ones
An estate plan serves more functions than just determining who receives your property and assets after you pass away. It also serves as a way to protect your loved ones, make medical decisions and appoint guardians for your children. At McKinnish Law Group, we will thoroughly examine your circumstances before helping you prepare an estate plan tailored to your specific needs.
An estate plan may include a variety of documents and measures, including:
- A will
- Powers of attorney
- Health care directive
- Guardianship appointments
Through a health care or advance directive, you can make important decisions about your own medical care and treatment, removing the burden from your family and power of attorney. For example, an advance directive allows you to make decisions on ventilators, feeding tubes and other life support measures. In a will, you can also establish specific burial and funeral instructions.
Without a will in Tennessee, your estate will go through the probate process, which can often take months and cause more difficulties for your loved ones and beneficiaries. The court will also decide who receives certain assets under Tennessee law. When you have an estate plan with a will, you can make these decisions today to ensure that the court honors your wishes in the future.
