Mareitta Based Metro Atlanta and Savannah Estate Planning Attorney

Estate planning information for families in transition through divorce, adoption or re-marriage.

Wealth Counsel Member | Practice Excellence Regardless of the size or shape of your family after divorce or re-marriage, planning for the future today can avert trouble tomorrow and preserve what you value most for generations to come. What many people don't realize is that the laws regarding inheritance are not the same for traditional and nontraditional families, for children not legally legitimated or for step-children.

At The Manely Firm, P.C., we understand that all families are different and have unique legal needs. We can help you learn how best to protect your family and your property after divorce or re-marriage thorough purposeful estate planning.

Assisting Traditional and Nontraditional Families in Planning for the Future

Estate planning is serious business, especially for families that are transitioning through divorce or growing through adoption.  We help Georgia families of all kinds understand what types of laws they are protected under and how a will, trust or another tool can serve as an effective way to prepare for the future.  There are a vast number of estate planning strategies and approaches.  At The Manely Firm, PC, we partner with attorneys throughout the WealthCounsel Community to identify the best approach to meet our families' endless variety of circumstances and situations.  We readily partner with other WealthCounsel member attorneys who have years of experience with particular estate planning needs, such as managing veterans benefits or setting up special needs trusts.  Through The Manely Firm, PC, our clients have access to attorneys throughout the country who have spent their careers focused solely on estate planning.  With The Manely Firm, PC, that knowledged is honed to meet the needs of our families in transition.

Often, people don't realize how one life event can create several important questions and considerations that could potentially cause conflict down the road. For example, adding a member to a family through guardianship is often a happy occasion for a family, but it also brings up complicated and multifaceted questions about the assignment of beneficiaries and other inheritance law matters.

Our team at The Manely Firm, P.C., wants to help you ensure that you are taking into consideration the important factors in your comprehensive estate plan. We will work closely with you to address all arrangements and financial needs when establishing wills, living wills and trusts , business succession planning , and elder care arrangements involving (but not limited to):

  • Traditional families
  • Same-sex partnerships
  • Same-sex partnerships with children
  • Grandparents/grandchildren
  • Divorced parents
  • Adopted children
  • Special needs children
  • Child care for dependent parents
  • Guardians and wards

Because families are often faced with transition — whether a birth or death of a family member, a divorce or other changes — we are also prepared to help our clients make modifications to their estate plans.
