Helping You Create A Will You Are Happy With
Before you pass away, you will want to have a will. The purpose of a will is to designate exactly what you want done with your money, property and other assets after you pass. Our lawyers will help you draft a will that:
- Lets your family know how much you love them
- Designates who gets what of your assets
- Gives another person guardianship of you or minor children
- Appoints an executor to perform your wishes
We will go over each section of your will with you to make sure your wishes are met. We can also help you draft a living will, revise a will or deal with will updates.
Drafting A Trust
When creating an estate plan, many people draft a trust as well as a will. The role of a trust is to help manage the transfer of one person’s assets or benefits to another person. A trust can be set up while a person is alive to help streamline where assets go. The truster sets up exactly what the beneficiary will receive, and this can continue after death.
Will and trusts are not essential, but it does make the process much simpler. If you do not have an estate plan, your family could be stuck in court after you pass working out the details of your estate.
