Estate Planning

We simplify legal concepts into clear terms, helping you make informed decisions for your family’s future.

At Inhulsen Law, we believe in creating estate plans that are designed with your specific needs in mind. We work closely with you to ensure your loved ones and assets are well-protected. 

We aim to provide clarity and understanding throughout the entire estate planning journey so that you understand what you need to do now and in the future to keep your plans on track. Our goal is to make sure you know exactly what preparations you have made and why they are in place, and to enable you to feel confident enough to explain everything to your family. We are always available to answer your questions or explore different options.

Personalized Estate Plans

Every individual’s situation is unique, and their estate plan should be as well. Our approach centers around understanding your specific circumstances and goals. We then craft a personalized estate plan that reflects your wishes, providing you with the peace of mind you deserve. When you want to secure your family’s future, protect your assets, and ensure your wishes are honored, we’re here to make it happen. This isn’t just about legal documents; it’s about creating a legacy that’s as unique as you are.

Will Preparation

Creating a will is a crucial step to protect your loved ones, avoid uncertainty, and ensure that property in your estate is passed on according to your wishes. At Inhulsen Law, we understand the importance of a well-crafted will, and the process begins with assessing the specifics of your situation and your unique goals. We review options with you and ensure that you understand the ramifications of your choices. Then we meticulously craft documents that clearly reflect your desires, ensuring your assets are distributed as you intended. Our concerns go far beyond legal formalities–we want to guide you through the planning process so that you can feel confident about the future. 

Trust Formation

Trusts are powerful tools that can be used not just for minimizing taxes and protecting wealth, but also for transferring assets to your beneficiaries smoothly and efficiently without the need for probate. Our extensive background provides us with a thorough understanding of how different trusts can be leveraged to align with your financial strategies and personal desires. From revocable trusts that offer flexibility during your lifetime to irrevocable trusts that provide long-term asset protection, we guide you through choosing the right trust structure that fits your unique situation. Then we work with you to ensure your trust is properly funded, and we’re always here to assist with trust administration if needed. 

Powers of Attorney

Life is unpredictable, and it’s important to be prepared for any situation. Establishing financial and health care power of attorney documents is a responsible step towards safeguarding your interests in case you should ever become incapacitated. We assist you in designating trusted individuals who can make important decisions on your behalf, ensuring your financial and health care matters will be handled according to your wishes. Preparing power of attorney documents can prevent the need for guardianship  in the future, which involves a lengthy and invasive legal process. With the right custom documents ready, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing your affairs are in good hands.

Healthcare Directives

Incorporating healthcare directives into your plan is one step we can take to protect you in case you are ever in a situation where you are unable to communicate your preferences for care and authorization for treatment. Because accidents and illnesses can cause medical emergencies at any time of life, it is wise for all adults in Michigan to have healthcare directives prepared just in case.

Two Primary Components of Healthcare Directives in Michigan

Healthcare directives, sometimes referred to as advance directives, often consist of two main components. The first part is a durable power of attorney for healthcare, which may also be called a medical power of attorney. The second part is a living will—a document that is quite different from a traditional last will and testament.
