Why Do You Need a Will?
A Will provides for an orderly disposition of your remaining assets on your death, allows you to decide who will be the executor in charge of your estate, designates a trustee and guardian for minor children, helps you minimize the impact of any taxes, and gives you the choice to disinherit family members or make gifts as you choose.
In the absence of a Will, there will be a lengthy process to be determined by a court as to how to administer your estate based upon your heirs at law. Making the tough decisions ahead of time will spare your family great expense and delay.
Please answer the following questions:
1. Do you have minor children?
2. Do you own a home or other real estate assets?
3. Do you have assets that are not held jointly, i.e. that are titled solely in your name?
4. Do you want your spouse or partner to inherit all of your assets?
5. Do you wish to “avoid probate” i.e.: dispose of your assets by joint ownership, gift, trust or otherwise?
6. Do you need to update your existing Will?
