Wills and Estates

You can protect your hard-earned assets and minimize tax

consequences through the creation of a customized estate

plan. At Liebmann Family Law, our Bucks County Wills and

Estates attorneys have decades of combined legal

experience to help you identify your needs and develop

a plan that’s right for you and your family. We understand

the trust you place in us to secure your family’s future.

Depending on your circumstances and desires,

we will recommend strategies that may include application

of the following estate planning tools:

  • Wills

  • Trusts, including Special Needs Trusts for disabled or dependent beneficiaries

  • Revocable and Irrevocable Living Trusts

  • Advance Medical Directives, including Living Wills and Health Care Powers of Attorney

  • General Durable and Real Estate Powers of Attorney

 

Why you need a will

With a legally valid Will when you pass on, you ensure that your assets are distributed to the people you designate and that your Estate is governed by an Executor that you select. You also can designate a guardian for any minor children and set up trusts for young or disabled beneficiaries. Without a valid Will, Pennsylvania law determines who your beneficiaries are, not you, and a Judge appoints the Administrator of your Estate.

 

 

Revising an existing will or trust

If your desires or circumstances have changed over time, or if you’ve gone through a divorce, you may need to create a new will or trust or modify your existing will or trust. The Wills and Estates Attorneys at Liebmann Family Law work closely with you to ensure your needs are met.

 

Probating an estate

After your loved one passes, it is emotionally difficult to deal with probating his or her estate. Our experienced Estate Attorneys can guide you through the often-confusing probate process that involves:

  • Proving in Court that your loved one’s Will is valid

  • Identifying, inventorying and appraising his or her property

  • Settling and paying debts and taxes

  • Distributing the property according to the Will

  • Transferring asset title and ownership to designated beneficiaries
