As the new year approaches, many make that mental To-Do list or a resolution to get their affairs in order. “I need a will” is a common item on that list.
Here are the top 6 important reasons you should have a will:
Appoint and outline the powers of an Executor who will handle your financial affairs.
Ensure that your possessions will be distributed as you wish
Appoint a guardian for minor children
Specify funeral wishes
Expedite the legal process
Reduce stress and heartache for loved ones
We can help you draft your will after identifying what you and your family need. If your family is faced with the death of a loved one and feeling overwhelmed by the process of handling the sale of the house, the transfer of title of any property, the paying of bills, and the distribution and closing of accounts, we can help you through the probate process. It can take several months, if not years, without the proper guidance of a dedicated attorney to handle the administration of even a more modest estate. Add retirement accounts and real property to sell, and you will be grateful to have an attorney to help.
