Your Hudsonville Lawyer For All Estate Planning And Family Law Needs

Shape Your Future With The Help Of A Compassionate Estate Planning Attorney

Estate planning is a powerful step toward peace of mind. It’s not just for the elderly or wealthy. On the contrary, it’s especially valuable for parents with children to protect. A thorough estate plan can not only address the needs of your children but also protect your values, assets, wishes and legacy.

I’m Jesse D. Bergwerff, an estate planning lawyer and the founder of Parakletos Law PLC in Hudsonville. The mission of Parakletos Law is one rooted in family, service and values. As a father and husband, I connect with the concerns you have for your children and loved ones. I infuse my practice with my strong Christian faith and work to build trusting relationships with clients.

Estate Planning Tools For Your Family’s Future

I can help you craft the right Michigan estate planning tools for you and your family, which may include:

  • Will: This powerful document will express your desires regarding asset distribution and care for your children.
  • Trust: This option can help manage and protect assets for your beneficiaries, whether during life or after death. It can also help minimize estate taxes after death.
  • Powers of attorney: These documents designate individuals to make crucial financial and health care decisions if they are unable to do so.
  • Guardianship decisions: I can help ensure that your children are cared for by the people you trust most in case something happens to you.
  • Asset protection strategies: I can guide you through options for protecting your assets for the benefit of your family and loved ones, for example, through a family limited partnership.

It’s also essential to pursue a new or updated estate plan when you’re facing family transitions like adoption or divorce.
