Estate Planning

Estate Planning Attorney in Allen Parish

The Importance of Estate Planning

Estate planning can help you distribute your property the way you choose. Estate planning tools, including wills and trusts, allow you to select your future beneficiaries and determine the assets you would like to leave them. The state of Louisiana requires forced heirship, but you can provide your surviving spouse with usufruct over the property, which will allow him or her to use the property without owning it. Additionally, you can give your loved ones assets under the terms of a trust and distribute them as you wish. If you have minor children, you can name a guardian to care for them. You can also choose an executor to honor your last wishes. With more than 35 years of experience, the Allen Parish wills & successions attorneys at Hebert Holmes & Fontenot are well-equipped to draft a comprehensive estate plan for you and your family.
