We encourage all Dayton residents, regardless of age, to have an estate plan. An estate plan can protect you and your family in the event of tragedy and death. However, estate planning is even more important for people reaching their golden years.
The population of Dayton and the state of Ohio, like the rest of the United States, is aging. In fact, while the Montgomery County population decreased from 2000 to 2010, the number of people over the age of 65 increased. Soon, much of the baby boomer population will reach the age of retirement.
With the growing population of seniors, the need for estate planning only increases.
If you are thinking about estate planning for yourself—whether you are younger or getting on in years—or for your parents, we can help. At Lovett & House Co., LPA, we have extensive experience helping individuals and families of all ages create an estate plan that protects their future. Attorney George Lovett has been certified as a specialist in estate planning, trust, and probate law by the Ohio State Bar Association, meaning that he has thousands of hours of experience in this area.
Everyone should have a will, no matter what their level of wealth. A last will and testament will allow you to choose how your possessions are distributed and who will be the guardian of minor children, if you have children under the age of 18. Depending on your unique situation, you may want to have a trust, health care power of attorney, and financial power of attorney in addition to your will.
Talking about your needs with an experienced Dayton estate planning attorney can help you determine what documents are important for your family. We understand that you’ll likely have questions about the estate planning process. We promise to listen to you and work toward finding the best solution for your needs and goals.
