Estate Planning And Probate Law Lawyers In Mona Utah

Mona is a city in Juab County, Utah, United States. It is part of the Provo–Orem, Utah Metropolitan Statistical Area. The population was 850 at the 2000 census. At the time this was sufficient under Utah state law for Mona to become a city, which it did at the end of 2000. Although current state law requires a minimum population of 1000 for cities, Mona remains a city. It is about halfway between Santaquin and Nephi, about 1.6 km (1 mi) west of Interstate 15. The town was originally settled as Clover Creek in 1852, then renamed to Willow Creek, then Starr, before receiving its present name. Burl Ives was once jailed in Mona for singing "Foggy Foggy Dew", because it was considered bawdy by the authorities. One of the unique things about Mona is a farm growing lavender. 120 acres of lavender are planted on the north side of town. Mona also has an annual Lavender Festival.

What is estate planning and probate law?

Estate planning is the process of anticipating and arranging for the disposal of an estate. Estate planning typically attempts to eliminate uncertainties over the administration of a probate and maximize the value of the estate by reducing taxes and other expenses. Estate planning attorneys advise clients on their options for disposition of real and personal property after death, and create any number of necessary documents pertaining to the estate and finances of the client -- including wills and trusts. Estate planning law attorneys also assist clients in setting out their end-of-life health care wishes through living wills and health care powers of attorney.
