At Dolan, Besser & Geffre, we understand how important your future is. Our Meeker County will lawyers can help you plan for the future and protect your interests. We can help you prepare a comprehensive estate plan that includes a last will and testament as well as other important estate planning tools.
Why You Need a Last Will & Testament
A will is a legal document that outlines how a person's assets and property should be distributed after their death. It specifies who will inherit the assets and who will be responsible for administering the estate. It may also include other important provisions such as guardianship of minor children or instructions for funeral arrangements.
Creating a will has several benefits, including:
- Control over your assets: A will allows you to control how your assets are distributed after your death. If you do not have a will, the laws of your state will determine how your assets are distributed, which may not be in accordance with your wishes.
- Avoiding disputes: A will can help to prevent disputes among family members over how your assets should be distributed. Without a will, family members may disagree about who should inherit your property, which can lead to costly and time-consuming legal battles.
- Naming an executor: A will allows you to name an executor, the person responsible for administering your estate, and ensuring that your wishes are carried out. This can help to ensure that your estate is managed efficiently and according to your wishes.
- Protecting minor children: A will can be used to name a guardian for your minor children. Without a will, the court will decide who will be responsible for caring for your children, which may not be in accordance with your wishes.
Overall, creating a will is an important step in ensuring that your assets are distributed according to your wishes, and that your loved ones are protected after your death. It is recommended that everyone create a will, regardless of the size of their estate.
