Estate Planning & Probate

Whether your estate is large or small, our estate planning group has the expertise and experience to ensure that your wishes are carried out, should the unexpected happen. Dealing with the death of a loved one is never easy, and having these items planned in advance can give your family a sense of peace and comfort knowing that they can take time to grieve instead of dealing with family disputes.

 
Planning Documents: We offer preparation of Wills, Transfer on Death documents, Revocable and Irrevocable Trusts, Asset Transfers, Family and Generation-Skipping Trusts, Charitable Trusts, Special Needs Trusts, Living Wills, Durable Powers of Attorney for both Health Care Decisions and Financial Decisions, Guardianships, and Conservatorships. If you are not sure what kind of planning documents you require, our attorneys will be happy to assist you in evaluating your situation and recommending what best fits your needs.
 
Maintenance Documents: Life changes every day. Divorce, marriage, adoption, and birth of children can alter your estate plan. We offer services to prepare Prenuptual and Postnuptial Agreements, Trust Amendments, and Will Codicils to adjust to any life event that could have an unintended impact on your original estate plan.
 
Tax Planning: With every estate plan comes tax liability. Our attorneys can help you understand the potential tax obligations you may face with your estate plan and determine how to minimize federal and state gift, inheritance, and estate taxes, for you, your spouse, and your children. We assist in preparation of federal estate and inheritance tax returns and gift and generation-skipping tax returns. We also provide assistance in resolving disputes with the IRS and Kansas Department of Revenue.
