Are we a good fit for you?

Estate Planning Attorney

Planning for your estate after divorce is more than just dividing up your assets – it’s about securing your family’s future and finding peace of mind. The estate planning attorneys at Truce Law aim to provide personalized solutions tailored to your unique needs and circumstances.

Why Have an Estate Plan?

Without proper estate planning, you relinquish control of your assets and leave your family’s future uncertain. Dying without a will means Washington State intestacy laws determine who inherits your property. This could lead to unintended consequences, like assets going to distant relatives rather than your spouse and children. Failing to name legal guardians could mean the court decides who will care for your kids if something happens to you. 

An estate plan puts you in the driver’s seat. It allows you to distribute assets as you wish, provide for loved ones, and appoint guardians for minor children. Estate planning also lets you establish trusts, minimize taxes, and bypass the delays and expenses of probate. With a carefully crafted plan, you can rest easy knowing your family is provided for.

What are the Benefits of Having an Estate Plan?

An estate plan can provide a number of benefits, including:

Peace of Mind

Knowing that your assets will be distributed according to your wishes and that your family will be cared for can give you peace of mind.

Reduced Conflict

An estate plan can help reduce conflict among your loved ones after your death.

Tax Planning

An estate plan can help to minimize estate taxes.

Asset Protection

An estate plan can help to protect your assets from creditors and lawsuits.

Incapacity Planning

An estate plan can ensure your wishes are respected if you become incapacitated.

Estate Planning Packages

Truce Law offers various estate planning packages to meet your unique needs:

Simple Will Package

A simple will package provides the core documents for basic estate planning. It’s an affordable, straightforward approach to protecting your loved ones. This package includes essential estate planning documents:

  • Last will and testament
  • Powers of attorney
  • Advance healthcare directive
  • Final instructions

Complex Will Package

With a complex will, you can customize your estate plan to provide for loved ones responsibly. An attorney well-versed in estate law can craft provisions to account for special situations while minimizing taxes.

Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, a complex will is tailored to your unique needs.

It brings peace of mind knowing your estate will be handled as intended.

  • Testamentary trusts
  • Special needs trusts
  • Customized distribution of assets
  • All documents in the Simple Will Package

Revocable Living Trust Package

Unlike a will, a living trust goes into effect as soon as it’s set up. You maintain ownership of assets you transfer into the trust, managing them as the trustee. This avoids probate, so your estate stays private.

With a revocable trust, you can provide for loved ones responsibly and show them they’re a priority. It’s an elegant solution for protecting what matters most – now and in the future.

Avoiding probate through a living trust provides additional privacy and control:

  • Revocable living trust
  • Pour-over will
  • Powers of attorney
  • Advance healthcare directive
  • Final instructions

First of all I would like to thank to Justin for his great work! My case was not easy (don’t want to use the word ugly), but thanks to Justin and his team I manage to win the case and being able to be with my child once again which was the goal from the beginning. The process of the divorce took more than a year and he and his team were with me the whole time. Very patient, persistent and knowledgeable. I will always recommend his service. Good luck to everyone out there.
