Estate Planning And Administration: Our Attorneys Find Solutions

Estate planning gives you the opportunity to provide direction and guidance to your family. An estate plan is vital for every individual and can include documents such a will, trusts, powers of attorney and advanced directives.

At Goodrich & Reely, PLLC, we are a firm of proud Montana lawyers with deep roots in our communities. We care deeply about our neighbors, not just in Billings and Missoula, where our offices are located, but throughout the state. Crafting a thoughtful, effective estate plan is important and our attorneys are ready to help you.

Consequences Of Not Having An Estate Plan

When a person passes away without an estate plan, his or her estate typically goes through probate. This means courts for the state of Montana will decide what happens to your assets and debts. Probate is not necessarily a simple process. Typically it is much more time-consuming and expensive if you do not have a well-structured estate plan in place. Probate also can lead to results that are contrary to your wishes.

By having an estate plan, you guide your family and prevent disputes. Estate planning is an act of compassion ­– an act of care.

When Is The Right Time To Create An Estate Plan?

Often, when you want to create an estate plan, you put it off until “the time is right.” But the right moment does not have to be:

  • Getting married

  • Having a child

  • Starting a business

  • Selling a home

  • Losing a loved one

The right time to begin working on your estate plan is when you begin thinking about it. If you do not have an estate plan, then the right time is now.

Our Estate Administration Services

Estate administration can be extremely complex and time-consuming. Many executors simply are not qualified to fulfill their legal responsibilities. Our attorneys provide estate administration services, helping executors fulfill their obligations and prevent disputes.
