Wills & Trusts In Indiana

Our Westfield, Indiana, estate planning lawyers can draft a will (Last Will & Testimony)that indicates how you wish your financial legacy to be distributed to your family, friends, and/or charities while also designating a person to serve as a guardian to your minor children. A Will must be filed in court to go through the probate process.  Also, we perform a thorough evaluation and analysis to determine whether a living trust will provide a better alternative as your primary testamentary document. Many people use living trusts to spare their surviving loved ones and other beneficiaries the expense and delay of the probate process. Generally, distribution of an estate under a will must proceed through probate in court, but a trust is exempt from the probate process.

Living trusts also offer the advantage of keeping your financial affairs private whereas probate proceedings are a matter of public record. Trusts come in many forms that contain very different provisions, so an experienced living trust attorney in Westfield can determine the best arrangement for your unique circumstances.

APPOINTING A DURABLE POWER OF ATTORNEY

A power of attorney is an important tool in your Indiana estate plan. Estate planning typically focuses on what happens if someone passes away, however what if an individual is injured, suffers from dementia and becomes incapacitated and unable to provide for his or her care. Without a power of attorney, a family member or friend would have to seek a Guardianship to make decisions on your behalf. 

At Webster & Garino, LLC, we can inform you about different kinds of powers of attorney and recommend how to achieve your estate planning goals. Our guidance can result in a thorough power of attorney that clearly sets forth your wishes. Call us now for help with Durable Power Of Attorney.

ESTATE PLANNING SERVICES

LIVING TRUSTS provide an effective way to handle the disposition of your financial legacy while allowing you to avoid the probate process. Although living trusts take many forms, they all allow you to maintain privacy about your financial affairs rather than having this information become a matter of public record in probate court. Use of a living trust also provides an effective probate avoidance strategy, which can reduce the costs and delays associated with distributing your financial legacy to your beneficiaries.

PROBATE When someone passes away, whether with or without a Will, an estate is typically required to be opened with the Court to determine what expenses are to be paid and the appropriate distribution of the deceased, person’s assets. The Court appoints a Personal Representative who is responsible for administering the person’s estate. This process is commonly referred to as probate.

What Items are Considered in a Probate Estate In Indiana?

A probate estate includes all assets held by the individual that are in his or her individual name and some types of jointly held property. If you need assistance handling estate and probate matters, an estate planning lawyer Indiana can help. Contact Webster and Garino LLC for information and assistance today.


DOCKET A TRUST places the administration of a trust under a court’s review. This may be a temporary or ongoing status for the trust. Most trusts only get docketed when a dispute has escalated to the courtroom. According to their written terms, beneficiaries may take this action when they have reason to believe that trustees are not administering trusts, according to the trust terms. After docketing a trust, a judge will  consider the issues and potentially force a trustee to comply or replace a trustee depending on the circumstances. To learn more about docketing a trust, call us today.


INHERITANCE DISPUTES can arise for many reasons. The unexpected intrusion of a creditor can disrupt your inheritance. You and your relatives might have concerns about someone’s undue influence on an elderly loved one. Someone who dies without a will, or intestate, could cause you and other family members to make conflicting claims upon the estate.
