Regardless of your financial situation, age or life circumstance, there is only one way to guarantee the best outcome for your family after an unexpected death or illness – planning.

That’s where we come in. At the Law Office of Stephanie P. Graham and Graham Estate Planning, it’s our goal to arm you with the tools and peace of mind to face whatever the future brings.

Areas of Practice
LAST WILL & TESTAMENTS

LAST WILL & TESTAMENTS

The first building block to any good estate plan, a Last Will & Testament establishes the Executor in charge of settling your final affairs, what powers that Executor will have, who inherits your property and how your property will be transferred to your beneficiaries

Trusts

Trusts

A trust-based estate plan is similar to a Last Will & Testament, but with a few key differences. It covers the four points listed under Last Will & Testament, but you’ll manage the assets, the person in charge of settling your final affairs will be called an Administrative or Successor Trustee verses an Executor and your beneficiaries may be subject to estate taxes.

HEALTHCARE DIRECTIVES

HEALTHCARE DIRECTIVES

An Advance Healthcare Directive, also known as a Living Will or Medical Power of Attorney, is a legal document in which you specify what actions should be taken for your health if you are no longer able to make decisions for yourself because of illness or incapacity.

Financial Power Of Attorney

Financial Power of Attorney

The durable Financial Power of Attorney is a way to allow someone to manage your finances in the event that you become incapacitated and unable to make those decisions for yourself. The Financial Power of Attorney grants someone legal authority to act on your behalf for financial issues.

Conservatorship

Conservatorship

In Georgia, the Probate Courts may grant Conservatorship of an adult resident who the Court finds lacking sufficient capacity to make or communicate significant responsible decisions concerning management of his or her property. Planning and preparation can avoid Probate Court, and proactively give you the power to choose the Conservator for your property.

GUARDIANSHIP

GUARDIANSHIP

Like Conservatorship, the Georgia Probate Courts may also grant Guardianship of an adult resident found by the Court to lack sufficient capacity to make or communicate significant responsible decisions concerning his or her health or safety. Proper planning and preparation allows you to make that decision for yourself ahead of time and avoid Probate Court.

Certified Notary

Certified Notary

When making, amending or dealing with estates, wills, deeds, real estate loans, powers-of-attorney and the like, a public officer constituted by law, known as a notary, is often needed.
