If you are in the process of building your family through adoption or assisted reproductive technologies, you will face particular estate planning needs that are not common to all families. For example, unlike many other estate planning attorneys, we are familiar with issues regarding frozen eggs and embryos. Claiborne & Surmay, P.C., is taking the lead to ensure that our estate planning services cover provisions for frozen embryos, sperm, and eggs.
At the Atlanta, Georgia, adoption and reproductive technologies law firm of Claiborne & Surmay, P.C., we provide estate planning strategies and services tailored to meet the unique needs of your family. We handle estate planning, and we understand the needs of families with adopted children.
If you have an adopted child, a child with special needs, or are seeking guardianship of a child or incapacitated adult, contact our offices to schedule an opportunity to meet with an estate planning attorney to discuss your estate planning goals.
We do much more than just draft wills
Estate planning involves much more than pulling a form out of a file cabinet. This is especially true for families with children who are adopted or families with children who have special needs. We take the time to understand what your current estate plan and financial picture looks like in order to draft estate planning documents that secure your family’s future. Our attorneys want to get to know you, and how you want your future to look for your beneficiaries. We know that ensuring the care of your special needs child or incapacitated adult will be one of your highest priorities. We can help you establish a special needs trust and administer the distribution of assets to your loved one. Many of our services are offered on a fixed-fee basis.
