While there are many benefits to having a will and estate plan written up, there are also a few issues that may present themselves that you aren’t equipped to handle. For instance, like some people, you may be including things in your will that are redundant or may not even apply to your particular situation. A prime example could be that in your will you list your spouse as the receiver of your home. While this seems like a nice gesture, their name is already on the deed, therefore, there is truly no point in noting this down in the terms of your will.
Because your spouse has joint ownership of your property, they will automatically be entitled to claim it as theirs once you pass away. Although this seems like common sense, there are many times when a person includes things in their will that aren’t necessarily required, or maybe you aren’t including these details in the correct context. For example, if you and your spouse are on the deed of your home and both are involved in a fatal accident, then who is going to be assigned rightful ownership of your home? Complicated questions such as this one are one of the main reasons why it is beneficial to have an estate planning lawyer working with you throughout this process.
