The Importance of Having a Will

When we pass away, our loved ones need to address many legal and financial issues. Your will is just part of what may be a larger estate plan that ensures that these matters are set out exactly as you wish. 

A will is a legal document that sets out how you want your assets distributed after your death. It will also address who will care for your minor children and who will act as the executor of your estate.

What Does a Wills Attorney Do For You?

When an individual dies without a will, it is called dying intestate.  Failure to have a will prepared can leave these critical matters up to an administrator appointed by the court and maybe even individuals who have no knowledge or understanding of how you would wish for these things to be carried out. In this case your family may need to hire an experienced probate lawyer.

Although a will can be prepared without the assistance of a wills attorney, having the guidance and advice of a skilled New York or New Jersey estate lawyer ensures that your will is correctly drafted and executed and reduces the risk of it being challenged. A lawyer who assists you in the creation of your will understands your wishes and will also be able to help properly administer it after you are gone. 

A Will is Not Just For the Wealthy

Wills are not only for the wealthy or individuals with complicated assets. Anyone who has any assets or children should have a valid will. 

In your will, you will have the ability to designate exactly who gets what assets and keep them out of the hands of people you would not want to have them. A will can give your loved ones faster and easier access to your assets and will name a guardian for your minor children instead of leaving this up to the court. It can also set out gifts and charitable donations.

When Should You Update Your Will?

You may already have a will, but your circumstances have changed since it was executed. Occasionally, a will should be updated when life has changed and the terms of the will no longer work. A will should be changed when

  • There has been a birth of a child or grandchild that demands a shift in asset division or guardianship issues.
  • You or a family member has divorced.
  • Family dynamics have changed. Families can be fluid, and changes happen. There may be a decline in physical or mental health, or an addiction has come to light that requires you to reconsider the terms of your will. 
  • Your executor is no longer a good choice.
