Wills

A will is a legal tool that assists in the distribution of property upon a person's death. A will allows a person to assure that the appropriate people receive the property you wish to leave them with. Proper estate planning may lead to thousands of dollars being saved in taxes and probate.

Prior to speaking with an attorney you should consider what and who you want to be contained in your will. Below is a non-exclusive list of some questions that you will want to think about prior to speaking to an attorney.

  • Who do you want to be your executor?
  • Who do you want to receive your property?
  • Is there a percentage you want each individual to receive?
  • Are there specific items you want to leave to specific individuals (i.e. family heirloom, car, etc.)?
  • If you have minor children, do you want to specify a guardian?
  • If you have minor children, do you want to set up a trust until they reach the age of majority or older?
  • Who would you want to be the trustee?

Additional things you may want to think about if you are considering getting a will include:

  • Organ Donation
  • Living Will
  • Health Care Power of Attorney
  • Finacial Power ot Attorney
