One of the best things you can do for yourself and your loved ones is to create a will. Wills and trusts are designed to safeguard your family’s future. In a will, you are able to designate what will occur in the event of your death and how to effectively manage your estate.
A will is designed to be the foundation of the estate plan. This document will determine what will occur with your property when you pass away. Failure to have a will in place means the state could determine how your property is disbursed. A will allows you to appoint a personal representative (also known as Executor or Executrix) to handle your affairs following your death. Wills also include information on the care of your children if they minors.
To create a legal will, it is important to meet with a reputable and responsible attorney to create an effective estate plan. Planning an estate is one of the most rewarding things you can do. Contact our office to schedule a consultation to discuss your will and trust planning needs.
