Planning your estate is a very intimate process that we are proud to help families through. Our plans are designed to smoothly pass memories and money to your loved ones.
For farmers and ranchers, your estate plan can help ensure a smooth transition of farm or ranch ownership and management. It can provide for the needs of all family members, even those who leave the operation. The plan can help reduce high inheritance taxes on land made more valuable by inflation and non-farm development pressure. And proper estate planning can address settlement problems that arise because land is not a liquid asset.
Asset protection helps you maximize the estate you pass on to your loved ones. Asset protection can be as simple as making sure you and your business have the proper liability insurance in place. It can also include advanced planning techniques such as asset protection trusts.
Special Needs Planning involves planning for the needs of a child or loved one who is not able to manage their own affairs completely. It involves guardianships, social security, Medicaid and Medicare, and special needs trusts. We will help you work through the process of planning for the future of your child.
Medicaid planning encompasses many service areas. Generally speaking, our role in your Medicaid plan is to organize your finances in such way to allow you transfer assets to your loved ones and smoothly transition to the Medicaid insurance system.
Probate is the legal process that pays the final expenses of the deceased and transfers assets to beneficiaries and heirs. If you loved one left a valid will, then the process will follow the guidelines in that will. If not, your loved ones estate will be distributed according Nebraska intestate laws.
We strive to help families by making this complex process as simple and stress free as possible. We translate the complex probate laws to explain the process in plain English. We keep clients informed during the process to eliminate uncertainty. And we make every effort to complete the process as quickly as possible to help families move on after the death of a loved one.
We will do everything in our power to make sure your loved one’s wishes are carried out just as he wanted them.
