Many people have learned the benefits of having a Revocable Living Trust. A living trust which is properly established, executed and funded will avoid the time and expense of probate for your heirs. There are several other advantages in setting up such a trust, so why not give Bathas & Associates a phone call for a free consultation to discuss your particular situation? There is no obligation, but it may be one of the most important phone calls you make during your lifetime.

At the initial consultation the firm will answer any questions you have and will be able to determine what estate plan best suits your needs. We ask you to bring to the meeting any existing wills, trusts, or powers of attorney you may already have, along with a current list of your assets, which will assist the firm in deciding which course of action is best for you and your family. You may also wish to bring the names and addresses of anyone you would like to include as a trustee, executor, guardian, agent or beneficiary.

Once you decide to proceed with your estate plan, the documents will be prepared within a short time period, usually within a couple of weeks, and another appointment will be scheduled to explain and execute the documents. We assure you that you will feel much better knowing that your affairs are in order, which will make the burden of your loss a little easier on your heirs.

At the initial consultation, we can discuss legal and financial strategies to protect you in case you have an extended stay in a nursing home.  In most cases, a couple of years in a nursing home facility can wipe out one's entire estate.  Let us assist you in preserving your assets within the applicable Medicaid Statutes in effect and allow us to give you guidance during the spend down period.

How can you get started in making these very important decisions?
It's easy. Just give us a call at 630-778-9939 or call our toll free number
