Wills and Trusts
Wills and trusts serve as the heart of every effective estate planning strategy. Whether you are just starting out in your adult life, have made a major change in your life or are getting ready to retire, drafting a valid will is the best gift you can give your family. Setting up a trust to ensure your heirs and beneficiaries will benefit from your success is an important way to make sure your assets are handled in accordance with your specific wishes.
The Law Offices of Derek Lim, in Fremont, California, has helped hundreds of Chinese and Asian immigrants protect their assets and meet their estate planning goals for their families through the effective use of well-written wills and trusts.Wills
Writing a will is the most common form of estate planning, allowing you to designate the distribution of your property and assets. Due to our ability to speak Mandarin Chinese, Cantonese, Thai and Laotian, we are able to assist individuals with all types of cultural backgrounds. Contact us online today to learn more.
We also handle living wills, often called advance health care directives, to make sure your family knows of your final wishes regarding health care treatment at the end of your life.Trusts
Our lawyer can help you protect those assets through the use of revocable and irrevocable trusts. Setting up a living trust gives you the opportunity to establish the rules under which your assets may be used by your children and grandchildren after your death. We can help you set up a trust for:
- College education
- Financial help for a loved one with special needs
- Purchase of a home
- Starting a business
At The Law Offices of Derek Lim, we speak Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese, as well as Thai and Laotian. Whether you are a member of the immigrant community in the Bay Area, or your family has been in America for generations, we are ready to help.
