Estate Planning & Probate

It is never too early to plan your estate. Our wills and trusts practice includes the drafting of wills and trusts, durable powers of attorney, and living wills. We constantly look at the big picture, assuring that immediate and long term goals are balanced, while not losing site of the details of individual and family interests.

Some people feel that they do not own enough property to have a will or a trust, but often times they have children.  Making sure your wishes are known regarding the care of your children will provide not only peace of mind, but will be helpful to your family and friends.

Hains Law Firm also assists personal representatives with the probating of estates, which is the process by which a person’s debts are paid and remaining assets are distributed upon the person’s death, and trustees with administering trusts.

Our attorneys also provide services in other types of cases that are filed with the St. Joseph Probate Court, including paternity actions, guardianships, and adoptions.
