Wills are legal documents that everyone should have prepared to be sure their last wishes are honored.
There are three common reasons why wills are not something everyone has taken care of – they simply haven’t gotten around to it yet, they do not believe it is urgent, or they do not have an attorney to draft up a will that is in accordance with state laws. At Tarantino Law, PLLC, we recommend that everyone have a will, and our estate law attorneys can be quite helpful in guiding you to create one that fits your current circumstances or revise one that may no longer reflect your wishes.
There are many things to consider when drafting up wills. Not only will you need to decide who to leave your assets to, but you’ll need to choose an executor. It is a good idea to discuss your choice with them to be sure they are comfortable taking on this responsibility. If you want to be sure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes, that there aren’t any family disputes about them, and that any other last wishes you want will be honored, wills are the way to do it. We can also discuss if setting up a trust or several trusts is a feasible option for your situation.
