Estate Planning

Together We Will Plan For the Future

Law Offices of A. G. Fortson, P.C.


Estate Planning can help you plan and manage your life, not just your death. A person’s estate is composed of all property owned by an individual including both real and personal property. An estate plan can maximize applicable tax shelters and address how individuals would like to be cared for when they can no longer express their wishes.

Help property titles pass easier and faster.

Avoid heavy court intervention by appointing an Independent Executor to carry out terms of Will.

Qualify a responsible person to be executor by waiving bond requirements.

Protect estate from creditors.

Prepare directions for the care of your health and property now before you are unable to communicate your desires.

Ease loved ones’ minds and limit family and friend squabbles. Too many surprisingly fight over the “little things.”

Distribute estate debt so that one person does not pay off all debts and another inherits debt free.

Provide guidance to  younger, inexperienced loved ones who may be corrupted by inheriting too much, too fast.

Ease financial strain of your funeral arrangements.

Avoid or limit estate taxes at your death. Estate taxes generally affect estates worth millions.
