Professional Consultants for Estate Planning
Mumford Schubel Law Office can provide estate planning for any client in need. If you own something of value that would pass on to someone else upon your death, you have an estate. You also have an estate plan, either created by the state legislature or created by you.
In Michigan, if you die intestate (without a will), the Michigan laws of descent and distribution will determine who receives your property. Typically, the distribution would be to your spouse and children, or if none, to other family members. The law does have some protections for a spouse and minor children. The State’s plan may or may not reflect your wishes. A will and/or trust allows you to alter the State’s default plan to suit your personal preferences.
If you create your own estate plan, it may involve certain documents to meet your estate planning goals.
