We'll Show You How You Can - Using A Simple Step-By-Step Process

 

Before we explain how we can help you, let's take a quick look at why you need a last will & testament and what happens if you die without making a valid last will. Unfortunately, the consequences of dying intestate are all too familiar to many people:

  • No Control Over How Your Assets Are Distributed - your assets will be distributed in accordance with state law and your wishes will not be taken into account;

  • No Control Over Who Cares For Your Children – a court will decide who is appointed as guardian of your children;

  • No Long Term Property Management Arrangements For Your Children – you can only make these arrangements using a last will. A court will decide who manages any inheritances your children receive;

  • No Control Over Who Wraps Up Your Affairs – state law will determine who is appointed as your personal representative and who will be responsible for closing your estate; and
  •  

    • Higher Legal & Professional Fees - legal and professional fees associated with the administration of an estate can be higher if you don’t make a will. These fees will be deducted from your estate and will ultimately reduce the overall value of your estate.  

     

     

     

    Making a Will is the only way for you to take control over these matters and to properly provide for the distribution of your assets to your family and friends. Fortunately, thousands of prudent people in America avoid these and other similar problems every year by simply taking the time to make a Will.
