Life is Short. Are Your Affairs in Order?

Estate Planning Lawyer in Bolivar, Missouri

Death is not something that any of us want to think about, yet it's something that all of us will face one day. We spend lifetimes building up wealth, assets, net worth, etc. Do you want those assets to pass to your children or family or other designated heirs? Do you want your surviving loved ones to avoid having to pay estate taxes? Do you want full control over how your assets are distributed?

Contact the Shive Law Firm today to schedule your free initial estate planning consultation.

Plan for Your Family's Future


Who Will Be the Guardians of Your Young Children?

Contrary to popular belief, estate planning is not just for the elderly. If you have minor children and something happens to you, who will become the guardians of your children? Sure there is an order of preference under state statutes, but don't you want to be the one to determine who gets to raise your children? A complete estate planning package drafted by the Shive Law Firm includes such designations. Estate planning options include:

  • Revocable trust agreement

  • Last Will and Testament

  • Guardianship designations

  • Durable Power of Attorney

  • Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare (Living Will)

  • Non-Probate transfers:

    • Beneficiary deed

    • Payable on Death designations

    • Transfer on Death designations

    • Assignment of business interests at death
