Your will is an important component of your estate plan. When you pass away, your will provides instructions for your loved ones who are left behind. In our previous blog post, we discussed some of the reasons for challenging a will. If you recall, one of those reasons was that the person who drafted the will wasn't legally competent to do so. In some cases, that can be because of declining mental function that might come with age-related conditions like Alzheimer's disease.
Since you never know what tomorrow will hold, it is vital for you to create your will and estate plan as soon as possible. By doing so, you can help to protect your wishes when you are going. If you wait, a decline in your mental state might mean that you aren't able to handle your own affairs.
We can help you to draft your will, establish trusts, and handle all aspects of your estate plan. We know that you might not enjoy having to think about the plans for when you are gone. You should realize that handling this matter now can help to save your loved ones a lot of hassle when you are gone. If you don't have an estate plan, your loved ones might be in for a long and costly probate process when you pass away. It might pit one loved one against another loved one.
Whether you need a simple will or need a more complex estate plan, we can help you to understand your options. We can talk to you about your wishes and help you to explore the options for making those wishes happen.
