Wills, Trusts, and Estates

Estate planning in Alabama is complicated, but Nick Callahan has significant experience and an in-depth understanding of the process. When a person dies without preparing a will, in the state of Alabama, the property they own is distributed as per the state laws and not as per their wishes. An “estate” in legal parlance means everything you own - personal possessions, bank accounts, investments, property, cars, etc.

Estate planning involves preparing specific instructions on what will happen to your assets in the event of your death or incapacitation.

A will goes into effect at the time of your death, and it involves appointing a legal executor who will carry out the instructions during the probate process. The Probate is the court-supervised process of administering a person's will and distributing their assets among the beneficiaries once the debts and taxes are paid.

A Trust is similar to a will, but it is not put through a probate process. There are two types of trusts – a revocable living trust and an irrevocable trust.

An experienced attorney will ensure that there are no ambiguities in a will that could be open to interpretation and will take care of planning the estate distribution in detail.
