Drafting an Estate Plan or Experiencing Probate?
Our Scottsbluff Lawyers Can Assist You Through the Process
For many individuals, the thought of passing away can be tough to face.
Unfortunately, this also affects their ability to plan for the future
and draft an effective estate plan. This means the future of their assets,
and everything they've worked so hard for, can be left to the decision
of the courts.
Estate planning is essential for many reasons, but most importantly, it's
an individual's way of deciding how their assets are to be distributed
after they pass away. Items like money, property, sentimental belongings,
and other treasured possessions can be properly handed down to family
members or friends based on the last wishes of the decedent. There are
many aspects of estate planning, and our firm can help you with every
step of the process so you can have peace of mind in knowing that you
property will end up in the right hands.
At Smith, Snyder, Petitt, Hofmeister & Snyder, we help with:
- Asset protection
- Living wills

Help with Probate Matters
Probate can be an incredibly complex matter, depending on the actions of
the individuals involved. Oftentimes, probate is a straightforward procedure
in which the decedent's assets are distributed based on their last
wishes by an administrator. If an individual challenges the will, though,
the situation can be prolonged and the courts can become involved in a
personal matter. Our probate lawyers have the experience necessary to
handle these situations so you can help deliver on your loved one's
final wishes for their property. We understand the stress and emotional
hardships individuals face when they lose someone they love, and added
legal battles are not something they need during this time. We can represent
you at probate hearings to help you reach the outcome you desire and deserve.
