Wills and Estate Planning

Wills and Estate Planning
Don't make the mistake of thinking that only the rich, elderly, or those with children need a last will and testament--every adult can benefit from an effective estate plan, including a last will and testament. At Boehmer Law, we understand that writing a will isn't the most pleasant of tasks. After all, by doing so you are not only acknowledging your own death, but actively planning for it. That might explain why so many adults avoid this cornerstone of estate planning. However, creating a will is one of the most critical things you can do for your loved ones. Putting your wishes on paper helps your heirs avoid unnecessary hassles, may help avoid arguments among family members, and offer you the peace of mind knowing that a life's worth of belongings will end up in the right hands—those you choose.

Our attorneys want to help you with this process. One of our Missouri wills and estate planning attorneys can work with you to devise an estate plan that explains how your assets should be distributed after your death. At Boehmer Law, we can work with you to develop a strategy to reduce estate taxes and help ensure the financial security of your spouse, children, and grandchildren. 

What is a will?
A will is simply a legal document in which you, the testator, declare who will manage your estate after you die. Your estate can consist of big, expensive things such as a vacation home but also small items that might hold sentimental value such as photographs. The person named in the will to manage your estate is called the executor because he or she executes your stated wishes.

What is an Estate Plan?
Your estate plan designates who will inherit your property and ensures that your children and loved ones will be taken care of in accordance with your wishes.
Assets of any kind — a home, investments, life insurance, or other possessions — mean that you have an “estate” and you need an estate plan. If you have minor children or are planning to have children, an estate plan is essential.


What should I expect at my first consultation?
  • Do you own a home or other properties?
  •  Do you have children?
  •  What are their ages?
  •  What are your wishes?
These are the types of questions your Boehmer Law wills and estate attorney may ask during your initial consultation. There’s no preparation necessary and no paperwork to bring – just bring yourself and we will listen. After your first free consultation, you can decide if you want one of our attorneys to prepare an estate plan just for you. There’s absolutely no obligation.
