Sensitive Estate Planning And Probate Law Representation

Wills are not just for the rich. They are an important life document for any individual who wants to see their assets go to the right people, in the right order.

Writing a will does not usually fall under the family law category, but perhaps it should. A person who dies without designating where his or her assets should go places a major burden on surviving family members. They will have to let the courts decide who gets what.

At the law offices of Heidi Milam, we understand that people put off thinking about what happens to their life's treasures after death. It's an uncomfortable thought for anyone. But leaving your family at the mercy of probate's inheritance rules should also make you feel uncomfortable.

It's really not scary, and you will feel better when you have your ducks in a row. And Heidi Milam will handle all the paperwork for you.

Estate Planning Assistance In Southaven, Mississippi

Heidi is versed not just in writing wills, but in every aspect of estate planning:

  • Wills
  • Trusts, to achieve greater control over your assets
  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) authorization, to grant your loved ones access to your medical information
  • Powers of attorney, so a loved one can make decisions for you when you are unable to
  • Advance directives, which dictate how you want to be cared for if you are no longer able to communicate

We also handle probate administration, managing the transfer of assets after you pass, and all the legal obligations that arise at that time — paying taxes, paying creditors, placing notices in the paper, etc.

When there is dissent in the family about a will or the probate process, Heidi Milam represents family members in litigation.

Estate planning works best when done with an experienced lawyer. If you do it yourself, there is a good chance the courts will set your will aside. We invite you to call or visit with Heidi Milam and discuss your desires. Call us at 662-655-1605. Or you may ask questions via email.
