Estate Planning for Your Family in Omaha
Estate planning is all about determining what will happen to your property after you die. It’s something no one really wants to think about.
Estate Planning Services
Leaving it up to the government, however, can create some serious problems and stress for your family at an already difficult time. That is why it’s best to have a thorough estate plan; one that handles matters like guardianship of children, division and control of your assets, and power of attorney in case of an emergency.
Estate planning can seem overwhelming, especially if you start looking at things like family trusts and estimation of asset values! That's where we come in. We offer estate planning that is down-to-earth. We take care of the complicated parts and make it all as easy, practical, and useful for you as possible.

Protecting Your Children
One of the most important factors in estate planning is guardianship of your children. It’s also important to establish how your assets can be passed on to your kids, and to make sure your kids are able to use them responsibly. We can work with you to figure out who would be the best guardian for your children. This is something we take very seriously - we think outside the box and help clients find people with the same values, parenting philosophies, and life goals; a stable and supportive home; and more, who would be great caregivers for their children.
Estate planning has its complications. There are a lot of legal terms involved, and if you have significant assets, the process can be more complex. Even things that seem simple - like passing on a family home - can become messy without the knowledge of an experienced Omaha estate lawyer. And if any mistakes were made, that may end up costing your family after you go.
We do everything we can to make the process as simple as possible. We understand the complicated stuff, so you don't have to. We know how to look at your assets and figure out the best plan for you and your family. If this involves steps like setting up a family trust, we know how to do that, and we can explain every step to you so you always understand what’s going on.
What Happens If I Don’t Have an Estate Plan?
It may seem scary to discuss death and finances, but if you don’t have an estate plan, the government or a probate judge will end up deciding what happens to your assets after you die. It is far better to plan ahead of time and decide what you want to happen to your assets. This makes sure your family isn't left dealing with taxes and other issues, and can also avoid the stress and conflict of your loved ones trying to figure out what you might have wanted. Your estate plan is a map, a blueprint for your beneficiaries’ financial lives, that lets everyone know exactly what you want done after you are gone.
