Alaska Estate Planning Fundamentals

One of the best ways to protect your family is to create a comprehensive estate plan. At the Law Office of Constance A. Aschenbrenner, we have experienced legal advisors who can develop a plan that meets your individual needs. Our expert estate planners will walk you through each financial decision, resulting in a customized estate plan personally developed for you and your family.

Alaska Probate & Estate Administration

When a family member or loved one dies, his or her estate often goes through probate. This is a court-managed process, unfamiliar to most, where assets of the estate are distributed. How an estate moves through probate depends on the complexity of the estate, state and local laws, and the schedule of the probate court. Hiring an experienced Alaska estate administrator can make this process less difficult and painful.
