Your estate consists of everything you own at the time of your death.  This includes bank accounts, retirement and investment accounts, real estate, vehicles, stocks, bonds, art, jewelry, collectibles, and any other personal property you own. An estate plan includes a Last Will and Testament, Durable Power of Attorney for Asset Management, Health Care Power of Attorney and Living Will.  Together these documents dictate who will make financial and medical decisions on your behalf if you become incapacitated and the distribution of your assets upon your death.  An estate plan should take into consideration guardianship for minor children, distributions to minors and young adult beneficiaries, beneficiaries with special needs, tax implications, and the probate process.  An estate plan may also include trusts (revocable, irrevocable, and special needs), joint and survivorship property, payable on death accounts, transfer on death property, and beneficiaries named under life insurance and retirement benefits.  Every estate planning client should carefully discuss all of their assets with an attorney to create an estate planning portfolio that meets their needs.  

This is the process of collecting, maintaining and distributing a decedent’s assets to creditors, heirs and beneficiaries according to the decedent’s will, trust, and the laws of Ohio. 

A guardianship is a court ordered relationship in which the guardian acts on behalf of an individual who is unable to care for themselves and/or their property.  A court may establish one of three types of guardianships: guardian for the person only, guardian for the estate only, or guardian for both the person and the estate. 

An adoption process in which the person seeking to adopt is a stepfather or stepmother of the person to be adopted. 

If you have been a resident of your county for at least 12 months you may apply for a name change for yourself or for your minor child.  

Any entity planning to transact business in Ohio, using a name other than their own personal name, must register with the Ohio Secretary of State, file and maintain appropriate documents, and apply for an EIN.  Whether it’s a corporation, limited liability company or partnership, forming a business entity to operate under provides various advantages both personally and professionally.
