Creating a will may be one of the most important tasks you undertake as an adult, particularly if you are a parent. Your will allows your wishes to be heard regarding who should care for your children, receive your property and distribute your estate. Your family will be able to access your money to cover your final expenses, pay any debts and perhaps keep a roof over their heads. Without a will, they would be forced to begin court proceedings just to name an executor who can gain access to your property.
You do not have to hire a lawyer in order to write a will, but you must invest time and effort to ensure you have done everything by the book.
Where Do You Begin?
How Do You Make a Will?
Determine whether a written—or holographic—will is valid in your providence. If it is and you choose this route, you must create the entire document in your own handwriting. Sign and date your completed will. Opt for a will kit, if you want to do it yourself but are concerned about making a mistake or forgetting an important detail.
Whether you handwrite your will, use a prepared kit or prefer to enlist professional aid, a lawyer like Terry Napora Law Office can help. Attorneys understand the law and can check over your will to guarantee it is legal or even prepare a will for you. A licensed, experience lawyer will give you the peace of mind you seek.Share
