Estate Planning


​Here at Kenneth Dious & Associates, we understand the value of personal and effective Estate Planning.


Without a will and proper estate planning, your entire estate may go into probate. At probate, a personal representative will receive all legal claims against the estate, pay the creditors and manage expenses. Heirs are identified by looking for blood heirs. The only way to leave part of your estate to a close family friend is to write up a will. If heirs cannot be located, then the estate typically becomes the property of the state. In the absence of a will, it is possible that everything in the estate will be liquidated with the proceeds being distributed between heirs according to state law.


If you want to ensure that your heirs receive specific items and your final wishes followed, then you will have to enlist the services of an estate planning attorney.  Contact us today regarding your Estate Planning needs.
