Conservatorship is a vital tool for treating mental illness

Probate courts in Connecticut provide the vital role of the access point for many citizens to the legal system. Beyond this function, the courts are also part of enforcing public safety, protecting people from each other's lack of capacity and – in some cases – themselves.

Things to keep in mind when creating your estate plans

You might not look forward to thinking about what will happen to your wealth and assets after you die in Greenwich, but it is a necessary task. You do not want the state to control who receives them. Though you may expect to live well into old age, there is no promise of tomorrow. Your health can change at a moment’s notice and with it, your ability to manage it. 

Estate planning should always be done with legal counsel

No one knows your intentions better than you, and it is likely you know the most about your finances and assets. It is probably tempting to plan your own bequests to your family, friends and favorite organizations upon death, but it takes more than knowing what one is working with to undertake estate planning.
