A will is a document that indicates how you want your assets to be divided and distributed when you die.
Ask yourself these questions. Are you married? Do you have children? Do you want your belongings to be given to certain people? If you answered yes, you need a will.
A will can help your family avoid any conflicts when you die. The Administrator of your will makes sure that your wishes are followed. You can leave all of your belongings to one person or you can divide it however you wish. You can also omit a person from your will. Having a will spells out those wishes. If you die without a will in place, state law governs how your belongings will be divided. If you have any property, assets or children, it is important that you have a will.
To prepare for your appointment regarding your will, you will need to write down your property and your other assets. You will need to make a list of items that you want to give to a specific person (Aunt Mary’s ruby ring to Jane Doe). If you want the items to be distributed equally among the family, that can be addressed as well.
Having a will in place will give you the peace of mind that your final wishes will be met and that your loved ones are protected. Call our office today and speak with one of our attorneys. Our number is 662-289-4740.
