If you do not currently have a will, you may not think you need a will. Contrary to popular belief, wills are no longer instruments reserved for the super-wealthy. Even the average person benefits from the peace and security that comes with knowing their last wishes are going to be honored. Our estate planning attorneys in Provo can assist you with the following issues related to wills:
- Creating a new will: If you are interested in setting up a will, our dedicated lawyers can help you.
- Changing a will: Do you already have a will? Changes in life circumstances, including new heirs, loss or gain of assets, new employment or the passing of loved ones, may require you to change your will to address these new circumstances. Our Utah County lawyers can review your current will and determine if it needs to be altered to incorporate and preserve your wishes.
- Contesting a will: Unfortunately, there are instances when the beneficiaries named in a will and/or individuals not named in a will may disagree over the intent or validity of a will. In these circumstances, it is important to engage a wills and trusts lawyer in Utah who can help you navigate through the complexities of a will contest.
In addition to handling powers of attorney, probate administration and general asset protection, we at Jeffs & Jeffs, P.C. can assist you with creating, maintaining or dissolving a trust. Trusts are legal entities that hold assets “in trust” for beneficiaries. Like an individual, a trust can hold a variety of assets, including cash, real estate, securities, bonds and physical assets. Trusts are managed by trustees for the benefit of named individuals known as beneficiaries. They are sometimes used as estate planning instruments to protect assets from taxation or government seizure while still maintaining some control over the disposition of the assets.
