Estate Planning in Virginia
Probate and Estate Planning in Virginia
An estate plan can avoid the probate process altogether or at least make the probate process easier for your family. While an estate plan may not prevent a will from being contested, it can make it more difficult for disgruntled family members to appropriate assets or become the executor of your estate. While our office is prepared to defend or contest a will, we can also help clients through each stage of the probate administration process.
At Smith, Barden and Wells, P.C. we make our goals in transferring and protecting your assets our primary concern in the estate planning process. After consulting with you, we can ensure that your assets are properly transferred with the least possible tax consequences. Therefore, the most effective planning and administration of an estate require a personal understanding of a client’s financial situation and current property and tax laws.
