Planning for the Future Through a Will

A will is a legal document that provides instruction for the distribution of a decedent’s estate. A will can address any of the following topics:

  • Asset division
  • Property division
  • Naming of assets
  • Naming of beneficiaries
  • Designating specific assets for specific beneficiaries
  • Guardians for minor children
  • Funeral arrangements / wishes

A living will is a type of will that communicates an individual’s wishes in the event he or she is unable to make health-related decisions independently. In addition to living wills, our firm can explain other types of wills that can benefit you. It is important that any will is drafted to address the unique needs of the individual it protects, and that it be updated when changes occur in you life; the birth of a child or a divorce.
