Probate Law

The Gentle Law Firm LLC has a team of attorneys ready to advise our clients on Probate Matters in the North Alabama region.  When someone passes away, their estate must be properly settled in the eyes of the law and, more or less, under the supervision of the court system. The process of settling that estate is known as “probate”, and it can either be a very long and arduous process or a fairly simple one depending upon the preparations the deceased put into place before they passed on. Note that not all estates go through probate and not all assets are subjected to the rules of probate.

Estate Planning

Estate planning can be a difficult subject to get through. Planning for your death is an uncomfortable topic, and because of this it is all-too-easy to push the thought aside. The fact of the matter, however, is that estate planning plays a vital part in ensuring your property – as well as your assets and bills – are properly dispersed and can help lift a burden off of your loved one's shoulders.

An estate plan can be put into place to help with everything from distributing property to specifying how you would like minor children to be taken care of. It is a process that goes far beyond a will, and is particularly useful in situations where children are involved, the estate is large or contains assets that are split between different locations, a business is involved, and special circumstances like blended families or families dealing with disabilities are involved. If any of the above describes your estate, then you should consider looking into estate planning consultation rather than simply completing a will. The estate plan can help better control how your estate is dispersed, how its beneficiaries are taxed, and even how any retirement plans are paid out.
