Everyone Needs a Will!
Many people think that a will is only for the rich or those who want to set up trusts. This is untrue. A will is for everyone. If you want to choose who gets your property, takes care of your children, your money, and more, a will is for you.
If you die without a will your property usually will be divided as follows:
If you have children when you die and have no will the court will appoint a guardian to take care of your children who may have to post a bond. Additionally, every year legal papers will have to be filed. Further, money to be used for your children would require court approval. All of the money spent on this, could have been money spent on your child!!
Why should I have a will prepared for me?
Today you may easily purchase preprinted will forms, but they cannot explain all you need to know and you may not prepare you will in a legally valid manner. You can consider buying a "how-to" book, but you might miss an important legal issue that might save you money. In order to have a proper will, you need the legal advice and experience of an attorney that practices in this specific area of law.
For example: Did you know that some types of property held jointly with another person cannot be distributed by your will? Or that life insurance policies may or may not be distributed by your will depending on if a beneficiary is named? Or that your spouse has a right to a share of your estate even if you want to cut them out of your will?
Having a will prepared for you is inexpensive yet vital. Consult with an attorney today and protect your loved ones.
I WANT MY ESTATE PLANNING DOCUMENTSPlease remember you only need to fill this out once even if more than one person is getting estate planning documents such as a husband and wife. AFTER you fill out this form you will get our questionaire that should be separately filled out by each person who wants their own set of estate planning documents. You should copy that questionaire before filling it out so that EACH PERSON has their own questinaire to answer.
One of the most important elements of your documents is time! It is important that you get them done now and not procrastinate because you can't make a decision. In the interim something could happen. Thus, it is better to have documents that you are not 100% happy with and then later on you can change them, than have no documents and something bad happens.
YOU CAN CHANGE THE ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS BELOW AT A LATER POINT IN TIME. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS TO ANSWER THEM NOW WHILE YOU ARE HERE. THEY ARE NOT SET IN STONE. JUST DO YOUR BEST AND YOU'LL HAVE TIME TO THINK ABOUT CHANGING THESE ANSWERS IN THE NEXT STEP WHEN YOU GET OUR FULL QUESTIONAIRE. Good luck.
Please answer these questions and you will get our questionaire after you press the submit button
