Frequently Asked Questions about Legal Services in Wisconsin

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1. What is Estate Planning and why is it important?

Estate planning involves making plans for the transfer of your assets after death. Assets, life insurance, pensions, real estate, cars, personal belongings, and debts are all part of one's estate. Estate planning usually includes the designation of an executor, who carries out the terms of the will, and can include the setup of trusts for minor children, a guardian for living dependents, funeral arrangements, and strategies to eliminate or minimize estate taxes.

2. What is the difference between a Will and a Trust?

A Will and a Trust are both estate-planning tools that can help ensure your assets are protected and passed on in the way you wish after your death. However, they function differently. A will goes into effect only after you die, detailing who will receive your property and appointing a legal representative to carry out your wishes. A trust, on the other hand, can begin distributing property before death, at death or afterwards, and it appoints a trustee who holds legal possession of assets for another person, the beneficiary.

3. Why do I need a Power of Attorney?

A Power of Attorney (POA) is a document that allows you to appoint a person or organization to manage your property, financial, or medical affairs if you're unable to do so. Without a POA, the courts may have to decide what happens to your assets if you are found to be unable to manage them yourself.

4. What is Business Succession Planning and why is it necessary?

Business succession planning is the process of identifying and developing new leaders who can replace old ones when they leave or retire. It increases the availability of experienced and capable employees that are prepared to assume these roles as they become available. This process ensures that businesses continue to run smoothly after a company's most important people move on to new opportunities, retire, or pass away.

5. How can a Business Lawyer help in growing my business?

A business lawyer can provide valuable advice for growing your business, from helping with the initial setup of the business, drafting and reviewing contracts, advising on hiring and employment law issues, and helping to protect intellectual property rights. They can also assist in ensuring compliance with local and federal laws, which can prevent costly legal disputes and penalties in the future.
