Bismarck Wills And Trusts Lawyers

If you die without a will, your assets are distributed according to North Dakota law. A properly drawn up will targets your beneficiaries and gives you greater flexibility in determining who gets what. It also allows you to establish guardianships for your children, describe your funeral preferences and designate an executor for your estate.

A trust is like a will, only much more powerful. Trust agreements are not supervised by the courts, so you have considerable freedom and discretion to devise a plan that imposes specific conditions on your estate. At Schweigert, Klemin & McBride, P.C., we construct many different kinds of trusts, including revocable and irrevocable trusts.

When there is a disagreement about a will or the probate process, our firm is available to help you resolve these disputes.

Our firm also counsels individuals on how to pass oil and gas mineral rights on to heirs.

In all our estate planning services at Schweigert, Klemin & McBride, P.C., the goal of our lawyers is to bring clarity and agreement to a major family transition, while minimizing tax payments for both your estate and the eventual heirs.
