Keeping It in the Family

When an estate owner dies, the first thing that happens is probate. During this process, the estate’s property can be used to pay off debts, taxes, and other possible expenses. For many people, probate becomes the death knell of their family’s assets. However, with careful, advance planning, you can avoid losing too much of your estate during this process. Aspen Legacy Planning offers many different ways to protect your estate and ensure your family can enjoy a secure, prosperous future.

We offer legal services for court proceedings such as:

  • Probate: For many estates, this court proceeding becomes an emotionally contentious area. With the help of an experienced South Dakota estate planning attorney on your side, you will have a better understanding of how to effectively use the law and increase your chances of obtaining the best possible outcome for your situation.
  • Guardianships: In some families, parents leave too soon, leaving behind children or adults with special needs who will require further, more intensive care. The laws surrounding who will have guardianship can be tricky, especially if more than one party is trying to obtain it. Let our team help you understand how to give your loved one the best chances at a healthy life.
  • Estate and fiduciary litigation: When a will is read, there are sometimes arguments about who should be entitled to what. Having a qualified legal professional present can eliminate confusion and make it clear what the estate owner’s wishes were.
