The last thing we ever want to consider is that something bad could happen to us or that we won’ t be given the opportunity of living our lives another day. Sadly, tragic accidents occur daily, and you never know when it could happen to you. For this reason, writing up an estate plan which encompasses your will is very important as you may have a large amount of assets that you acquired over the years. While your state laws generally state how your wealth is divided once you pass away, shouldn’t you have the privilege of dictating how you want this done?
This is one of the main reasons why many have a will written up. You need to be mindful, however, that if you elect to write up a will on your own, it must abide by all state laws, and carefully provide a detailed description of who is receiving what and the terms on how this will be done. While it may seem simple and easy to accomplish, mistakes can arise and if you don’t write it up properly the first time, you risk the chance of someone not receiving an inheritance they deserve and there won’t be a thing you can do about it.
Hiring an experienced will and trust attorney in your city who understands this process, the laws that apply to it, and how to get the necessary paperwork completed and filed to ensure your will is valid and that the instructions listed will in fact be carried out in the manner you stated is what you need. We often aren’t aware of the legalities that come along with creating an estate plan and we want to be sure you not only have a lawyer who specializes in estate planning to help you, but someone who is reputable, well-trained, and truly possesses the required experience.
