Wills in Montgomery County:

What is a will?

Generally speaking, a will is a legal document that coordinates the distribution of your assets after death and can appoint guardians for minor children.

Why have a will?

Without a will, the state in which you live will dictate who receives your assets, according to your state’s laws.  This is known as dying intestate, and the resulting settlement process may not produce the results that you would prefer for your survivors. You can prevent this from happening by having a will prepared that reflect your wishes, by an estate planning attorney.

What is in a will?

A will usually names an executor, who carries out the provisions of the will.  The will also names the beneficiaries: the persons or institutions (for example, charities) who are inheriting the assets.  The will should include instructions for how and when the beneficiaries will receive the assets, and may provide for guardians for minor children.

In any situation, it is important to consult with an experienced estate planning attorney to ensure your estate plan is made properly and before it is too late to prevent a negative impact your estate.
