Why Establish a Will?
Your will directs the distribution of your assets and property after your death. In your will, you will also name an executor, the person who will carry out your wishes. You can make the executor independent, which means he or she can act without court supervision and reduce the probate cost. Without a will, your estate will enter probate and the courts will decide how your assets are distributed. A court’s asset distribution orders are based on state guidelines. Though courts generally distribute property to surviving family members, certain assets will go to the state in some situations.
Working with a skilled estate planning attorney can help you protect your estate for future generations. Having a will can put your mind at ease.
Together, we can discuss your wishes and the current condition of your estate, including issues such as:
- The financial health of your estate
- Any existing debts
- Your assets and property
- Your descendants and other family members
- Your personal preferences for the distribution of your estate
