Most people don’t want to think about what will happen when they die. Life is short and thinking about death is no fun. However, it is important to make sure that when that day comes your affairs are in order
and your family is taken care of. That’s why a last will and testament is so important. Let’s take a look at some things you should know when it comes to preparing your last will and testament with your estate planning lawyer.
Know Your State Laws
It’s important to create a will. It’s also important to know the laws should your will be deemed invalid. Each state is different when it comes to their laws when there is no valid will. While in most cases your estate goes to your next of kin
, it is important to know that for sure.
If You Have Young Children, State a Guardian
While a will is important when it comes to your estate, it’s also vital for the well-being of your children. If you have children under the age of 18 you need to select a guardian should you pass before they turn 18. If you don’t have a guardian
listed, the court will decide the fate of your children.
