What Does a Will Do?
A will is a commonly used document in an estate plan, used to distinguish
who will inherit a person’s assets in the event of his or her death.
The assets that can be divided in a will include properties, possessions,
funds, or heirlooms. A will can also be used to donate funds or possessions
to specific charities. The establisher of the will may specify conditions
to inheritance in order to protect certain assets or the person inheriting.
For example, a will can specifically state that a child shall only inherit
a certain fund if he or she is over the age of 18, or goes to college, etcetera.
Protecting Your Children
Will documents can also be used to appoint guardianship of any minor children,
should something happen to both parents. A will may designate a legal
guardian to any child under the age of 18, and can also elect an alternative
guardian, should the initial choice be unable or otherwise unwilling.
The Importance of Establishing a Will
Creating a will can help protect your property from going into probate,
which can make it much more difficult for your loved ones to access your
assets after you have gone. Probate court can be a very emotionally trying
process most families wish to avoid whenever possible. Our attorneys can
help your family avoid any unnecessary stress that could result from the
probate process by establishing a clear will document that is legally
binding and less likely to be contested.
