It could be argued that one of the most important estate planning documents you create is your last will and testament. At Bennett Guthrie PLLC, we know that creating an estate plan can cause you to reflect on sensitive topics, and it may require some thoughtful planning. Fortunately, our experienced attorneys can not only help you create the documents you need, but we can also work with you to complete your last will and testament so that it accurately reflects your final wishes.
Everybody should have a will. A will is a legal document by which a person expresses his or her wishes as to how his or her assets will be distributed at death and names somebody, the Executor, to manage the estate until its final distribution. While nobody likes to think about death, it is always a good idea to plan ahead and make sure your assets are distributed to the intended people. It is important to make sure your intentions are written down to avoid confusion and family disputes. As previously stated, you will name an Executor to manage your estate until its final distribution. If you have minor children, you can also name a guardian or guardians to care for your children following your death, and you can also establish a trust to provide the necessary financial support for your minor children. By using a trust, you can provide for the care and financial support of your minor children until they reach a certain age. You will feel relieved once you have executed your will because you know that your family will be taken care of following your death.
