Smart to be asking. Based on post here---you should get a lawyer. WOuld hate to see you screw up your own will (happens every day in every state) and then the State will decide how to distribute your property. Use Google, look for elder law attorneys or wills and trusts attorney in your area.
May have other issues (health directives/POA etc) that need doing too.
Good luck to you.
NO ATTORNEY CLIENT PRIVILEGE IS CREATED OR EXISTS. Do not rely on any answers you get online from me or any other lawyers in this forum---nothing substitutes for a confidential and protected discussion with an attorney. There is no way you have provided sufficient information for a proper legal analysis—can’t be done online. This is a general legal question and answer site and guidance here is for general interest---a push in the right direction.
I agree with Attorney Rafter. You need an estate planning or elder law attorney in your town to meet with you and prepare a proper will that is designed for your specific estate planning goals. You can find many qualified lawyers using Avvo's "Find a Lawyer" feature. I wish you the very best in 2019.
Most estate planning attorneys offer free initial consultations with no obligation unless and until you hire them to provide some legal service (like draft a will). I think you will also find that most estate planning attorneys also offer many services on a flat-fee basis, so you will know up front exactly how much everything will cost you.
Try clicking "Find a lawyer" above. Good luck and don't forget to select a "Best answer." It really helps us attorneys out.
