Planning for one’s death might seem difficult, but the reality is a little forethought can help protect your family and their future.
Many people wrongfully assume that writing a will merely determines who will receive what assets in the event of your death, but the reality is that wills can be incredibly complicated. By partnering with an experienced estate planning lawyer at Hensley Krueger LLP, you can rest easy knowing your will is set up to protect your family’s best interests.
What Is Legally Considered A Will?
A will is a legal document by which a person expresses how they want their property to be distributed upon their death. A will also names an executor, the person who will manage the estate until the assets are distributed. In order for a will to be valid, it must be signed, dated, and witnessed by two other parties who will not benefit from the will.
Why Work With A Lawyer?
There are many things to consider when writing a will beyond the distribution of your belongings. If you are a parent, who will take guardianship of your child in the event of your death? Who will you entrust as the administrator of your affairs? Would you like to make philanthropic donation? What will happen to your business? There are many complex circumstances requiring an experienced attorney to help you plan for.
