If you have recently taken the time to consider all of the assets you have acquired, and who you would want to receive what after you pass away, you may realize there is a lot more to this process than simply writing down who gets what. There are certain things that come into play such as marriage, divorce, and children, not to mention the more complex assets that must be handed down. Businesses, 401K’s, and even inheritances all make the process of writing up a will and estate plan complicated which is why many have chosen to allow a Montana estate planning attorney to assist.
While some elect to use software and other programs designed to help with crafting a will and estate plan, the fact is, having a true professional working with you who understands the importance of a will and each term not only puts your mind at ease knowing your last testament is going to be carried out, but everything in your will is legitimate. For instance, if you own a piece of property and you want to name a child of yours as a beneficiary to receive it, this must be clearly written out in the terms of your will.
In the event your will becomes invalid, or you neglect to write one up, your assets are then probated by the courts and disbursed based on state statutes. Although many of the things you own go through the probate process, if you have a will, you at least have a say in how these things are passed down, and to whom.
