A Last Will and Testament, commonly referred to
as a "Will," is an official legal document which
is drafted to provide your final instructions and wishes
relating to how your property and assets are to be
distributed in the event of your passing.
There are certain formalities required by the state for
a will to be valid. In addition, the specific language
used can greatly impact the manner in which the estate
will be administered. For these reasons, we strongly
discourage the use of do it yourself wills which may
be found on the internet.
Depending upon the size of your estate and the types of
assets owned at your death, a last will and testament
should address the disposition of or issues such as:
Your wishes concerning guardianship of your minor
children or mentally / physically incapacitated
dependents after your death;
The distribution of assets such as your home, your
land, and other property;
Your motor vehicles, recreational vehicles and other
Proceeds of certain life insurance policies;
Furniture, boats, and other property of value;
You investment portfolio, and shares of stock;
Jewelry, artwork, and so on.
