Let Us Create an Estate Plan for Your Family in Upper Darby, PA
Some firms offer one-size-fits-all estate plans or even use online templates, filling in the blanks and creating a generic estate plan that may tell your heirs which assets they get but that does little to address your family’s unique financial situation. We build estate plans based on the needs and concerns you voice to our team and offer peace of mind often lacking in a one-size-fits-all product.
When our team creates an estate plan for your family, you can feel confident the plan will:
- Ensure your family has a secure financial future even after your death
- Make it clear where you want your assets to go after you pass away
- Make the probate process easier on your family or helping them avoid it entirely
- Give your survivors immediate access to the money they need to pay bills
- Reduce the risk of disputes over your assets and estate
Our team can go to work on your estate plan today. If you do not have an estate plan, or if you have a will that needs updating, we can help. Call our team at (856) 857-6007 to get started on your estate plan in Upper Darby, PA.

Your Estate Plan Will Protect Your Minor Children When They Need It Most
For parents of young children, the most important part of their estate plan – if not the most difficult to think about – is often the part that outlines a plan for their minor children in the event both parents pass away. We will walk you through this process step-by-step, making decisions about who will serve as your child’s guardian as well as making decisions about who you trust for their:
- Educational decisions
- Religious upbringing and guidance
- Medical care
- Financial decisions
An estate planning lawyer in Upper Darby, PA will ensure there is a plan in place that provides for your children from the moment you can no longer care for them until they reach age 18 and beyond. We know how to create a plan for continuity of care, including giving them the emotional support they need in the days and weeks following your death.
In addition to providing guardianship documents for your minor children, we can also create trusts that go into effect when your life insurance pays out. This type of trust holds the life insurance proceeds and other assets to provide for your children’s needs. A trustee oversees the trust. You can choose a trusted friend or enlist the help of an attorney or financial institution.
