Wills
Your life is a busy one, filled with working, caring for your family and the details of living. But have you ever thought what will happen to those you love if you should die suddenly, without leaving a will? Dying Without A Will: Some Facts To Consider Your estate will end up in a lengthy probate process, no question. But here are some more facts to also consider: In Kansas, if you are married with children and die without a will: One half (1/2) of your property automatically goes to your spouse, one half (1/2) goes to the children If both spouses die and leave minor children, the court will decide who raises them In Missouri, it is even more complex. According to the Missouri Probate Code, revised August 28, 2013,* how your estate will be divided depends upon, for example: Whether the relationships in question are by blood or marriage Whether or not the marriage was legitimate If you died with a partial will The bottom line: Don't force your loved ones to go through the pain of probate court as they are going through anguish and grief over losing you. And do not try to create a will by yourself. Give those you love the added peace of mind by creating your will with my experienced guidance. I am Cary Smalley, founder of The Smalley Law Firm, LLC, in Overland Park, Kansas. Giving Clients' Peace Of Mind With Legally Solid Wills Since 2005, I have been helping clients like you secure their family's future by creating wills that truly fit individual situations. Being able to do that is far more than filling out a form. It means listening to them, understanding what they value, and then applying years of experience to custom craft the best legal document for their situation. In the area of estate planning, the term "will" is a broad one and can include the following documents: Simple wills: Distribution of property Complex wills: Distribution of property for more complex financial situations, such as estates that require estate tax or families with minor children who require guardianship Living wills: What, when and how end-of-life decisions are to be made when you are incapacitated To ensure your loved ones are adequately protected according to either Kansas or Missouri law, it requires an experienced lawyer licensed to practice in both states. I am that attorney. Need A Will? Call Me. I Can Help. Contact me, Cary Smalley, founder of The Smalley Law Firm, LLC.
