You Have Options...
When it comes to wills, you have options. Here are just three of the options you may have. Be sure to contact our firm to set up a consultation to see which option suits your situation the best.
Last Will -is used to ensure that your property is distributed according to your wishes. A Last Will and Testament can also name specific beneficiaries, specify last wishes, and name guardians for minor children. It is an important part of any estate plan. Without one, the courts will make these critical decisions for you. Don't let state law determine how your assets are distributed; excute a Will and make this important determination yourself.
Living Trust - is used to transfer property to beneficiaries. But unlike a last will, a living trust is not usually subject to probate court, which can take years and cost thousands in attorneys' and administration fees.
Advance Directive/Living Will/Medical Power Of Attorney - lets you outline important healthcare decisions in advance, such as whether to remain on artificial life support and allow you to appoint someone you trust to make critical health care decisions for you if you cannot.
