Estate Planning Basics

At Ransmeier & Spellman P.C., we understand that you want to dictate where your money and belongings will go after you've passed away. We also know that you might want to have health care directives in place and money set aside in case you need additional health care as you get older. If you do, then know that this is all a natural part of estate planning – a process with which our attorneys are quite familiar.

Over the last three decades, we've helped individuals and families all over New Hampshire and in parts of New England address their end-of-life legal needs. We've helped them draft the most basic parts of an estate plan, such as:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Powers of attorney
  • Health care directives

We also have experience with more complex estate planning matters like:

  • Revocable and irrevocable trusts
  • Life insurance trusts
  • Charitable remainder trusts
  • Special needs trusts
  • Trusts for minors
  • Quitclaim deeds
  • Real estate transfers

Put Your Family In The Best Position After Your Death

At Ransmeier & Spellman P.C., we understand that grief can sometimes cloud a person's judgment and make situations more difficult and stressful. That's why we walk individuals and families through the estate planning process before a loved one becomes unable to. We carefully examine the estate and help the involved parties draft a plan that makes sense for the family and complements the individual's end-of-life wishes.

We help families avoid potentially complex probate litigation by addressing:

  • The transfer of wealth to future generations
  • The transfer of the decedent's home and personal belongings
  • Charitable giving
  • Issues concerning business succession
  • The possibility of disability or incapacitation
  • Long-term health care needs
  • Estate and income taxes

Though we do our best to put families in the best possible legal standing after a loved one dies, conflicts can still arise. When they do, the lawyers at Ransmeier & Spellman P.C. are prepared to handle cases through mediation and litigation.
