What A Will Will NOT Do

Without a doubt, a will is an important component of any estate plan. It’s primary use is for the testator to express their wishes as to how their assets will be distributed to their loved ones after death as well as name an executor to carry out the distributions. While the function of a will is integral to any comprehensive estate plan, it’s important to fully understand the legal capabilities of a will to make sure that you are as informed as possible when drafting these documents with or without your attorney.

Creating a will can be simple for some and very complex for others. If you or a loved one are looking to get a will drafted, we highly recommend that you consult a licensed estate planning attorney who can guide you through the rough waters of estate planning.
