Get a Will or a Trust, Today

You’re going to be fine, hopefully for a real long time. But you still need to protect yourself with a Will just the same.

Everyone seems on pins and needles. It’s downright terrifying seeing some of the news stories coming in. Though you know you’re going to get through this time, it’s still unnerving. What does that have to do with you getting a will or a trust today? Some people are born gamblers – always wanting to put things off until they really need it. But there aren’t many of them right now – no matter how strong their stomachs are for risk – who would never turn their backs on a sure thing.

That’s one reason for the success of The Rosenblum Allen Law Firm. There isn’t any gamble about it at all. You know when you buy it that your loved ones will be protected in the unlikely event something bad happens to you. Even born gamblers appreciate the peace of mind a sure thing presents them. After all, your total assets are pretty high stakes to gamble with and the odds are all against you if you go through life without a will or trust. 

In the important matter of protecting your family and getting peace of mind back in your life with everything that is going on in the world today – just stick to The Rosenblum Allen Law Firm for estate planning and luck and peace of mind will always be yours!

What is a will?

A will is your last word to the Court for instructions on the handling of your property and affairs. It is best to think of a will as your roadmap for the probate process. It provides the person responsible for overseeing the settlement of your affairs guidance and instructions about how to distribute your assets. Preferably, a will be written and witnessed by two individuals in order for the will to be valid under Nevada law. There are many benefits to creating a Nevada Will including the fact that wills can be amended and revoked, you can attach conditions to your bequests and you can plan for the guardianship of your minor children. However, creating a will does not necessarily avoid the probate process.

Advanced Directive Explained

Advanced directives are legal documents that allow you to spell out what you want for healthcare, financial matters and other matters in the event you are unable to make decisions for yourself. Having Advanced Directives allows you to tell your family what you want and helps avoid confusion in the event you cannot explain your wishes and desires yourself. An Advanced Directive includes items such as a Financial Power of Attorney, Healthcare Power of Attorney and Living Will, also known as a directive to the physician.

How is a trust different?

A revocable living trust is a legal device that can be used to manage your property during your lifetime and to distribute your property after your death. A revocable living trust is established by a written agreement or declaration, which appoints a “trustee” to administer the property transferred to the trust, and which gives detailed instructions on how the property is to be managed and eventually distributed.

What is a Healthcare Power of Attorney?

A healthcare power of attorney allows a person to choose to make decisions for themselves about how they would like to receive medical care and treatment in the event they become incapacitated or unable to make decisions. In addition, a healthcare power of attorney allows a person to make end of life decisions. Having a healthcare power of attorney is helpful because it avoids guardianship, saves money and gives you, the individual, the ability to choose someone you trust to make medical decisions for you if you can’t make them for yourself.
