Estate Planning

What specific wishes do you have about your health care, finances, and property near and at the end of your life? Even if you don’t have specific wishes, an estate plan can help ease the stress for your loved ones so that they don’t have to worry and wonder what you would have wanted regarding things like hydration, nutrition,or resuscitation. Have you memorialized your wishes about whether you’d like to be buried or cremated. An advance directive, powers of healthcare and financial attorney, will, and a trust may be instruments to consider depending on your situation.

Guardianship

Real life guardianship scenarios can feel like being thrust into works of fiction - emotions are tense and the stakes are often equally high. In the case of minor guardianship, for example, a grandparent may find that they need the legal authority to care for a grandchild while the child's parent or parents are unable to care for them. Unlike adoption, which is highly scrutinized because it involves terminating the rights of a parent, guardianship can preserve familial connections while allowing the guardian to care for the child with legal authority. When money enters the equation, the care of an individual's bank accounts, business interests, and the like fall under what Nevada courts call guardianship of the estate. Adult guardianships hinge on the incapacity of the ward, their shown inability to manage their affairs (personal and/or financial) or even can be based on their consent to receiving court supervised assistance. You do not have to face the process alone at a difficult time.

Probate

Probate involves the court supervised process of carrying out the estate planning wishes of the person that passed away (the decedent). Whether or not you have a will, your estate can be subjected to the probate process by which the will is proved. "Smaller" estates are streamlined under Nevada law but are no less important. Therefore, families don't often anticipate that while they are in the process of grieving, they will have to participate in legal process to wrap up the affairs of their loved one. Even uncontested probate has multiple steps to ensure proper oversight and to protect the wishes of the decedent. Call 702-825-3483 to set up a consultation or fill out the contact form below.

Homa Sayyar Woodrum has been licensed to practice law in the State of Nevada since October 2007. She graduated from the William S.

Prior to law school she earned her BSBA in International Business at UNLV and has lived in Nevada since the year 2000 after relocating from Wasilla, Alaska.

Homa is also an advocate for food allergy awareness, safety, and inclusion.
