Middleton Law Offices offers will, trust, and estate planning services to the Bowling Green area and greater northwestern Ohio. Whether you are trying to avoid probate or protect your assets, our skilled and experienced attorneys are dedicated to assisting you beyond your expectations.
Our Estate Planning services include:
Wills, Trusts, and Estates - Our experienced team of legal professionals can work with you and your family in managing your personal affairs and planning for the disposition of your property as you approach the later years of life. A will allows you to transfer assets at your death, while a trust can help to expedite the process of transferring assets to your beneficiaries prior to your death and avoid probate upon death. Our attorneys can work with you to achieve the goals you have in mind and do so in a way that avoids probate, will contests, and harsh tax consequences.
Asset Protection - There are a variety of legal tools that can help seniors to structure their assets in a way that will allow them to qualify for Medicaid nursing home benefits, avoid tax consequences, and ensure that assets will last throughout the remaining years of life. At Middleton Law Offices, we counsel our clients on the legal tools available to meet their needs.
Special and Supplemental Needs Trusts - A special needs trust is a versatile legal instrument that can be used to protect the assets of a disabled person and ensure their continued care throughout their life. A supplemental needs trust, on the other hand, allows a third party to establish a trust on behalf of a disabled third party beneficiary. The requirements for establishing a special or supplemental needs trust can be detailed and complex, so it is important to consult a qualified attorney to assist in the process.
