John Cartwright has years of experience in assisting families and friends in obtaining the Court's permission to act on behalf of their parent, family member or loved one.
Guardianships & Conservatorships
If a parent, family member or loved one is unable to make informed decisions regarding their care and/or finances, a Guardianship or Conservatorship is required to enable their affairs to be properly cared for. A petition for either a Guardianship or Conservatorship needs to be filed in the Probate Court for the county where they currently live.
Wills, Trusts & Estates
After you die is not the time to plan for the distribution of your assets. There are many steps that can be taken, prior to death, to ensure that you give those things that are important to you to the person or persons that you want them to go to.
Last Will Testament - Family Law in Hyannis, MA
A Trust can transfer property out of your direct ownership so that it is not part of your estate at your death. This can allow assets to not be “countable” for estate tax purposes, but allows transfer to the person, or persons, you intend to benefit from the asset.
A Will directs your representative to give certain things to certain people and allows you to choose alternate recipients in case the primary beneficiaries do not survive your death.
Probating an Estate is required when the asset is held by the deceased in his or her name only and the Court has to authorize the transfer of the asset to the correct individual. The Court is guided by the Will, if there is one, or the rules relating to transfer of ownership when the owner dies without a will.
John and Ann have developed a close network of other lawyers and professionals who can provide assistance in those specialized areas where they do not practice.
