At Messina Law Group P.A., we understand that you worked hard throughout your life to earn what you have. A will can help protect those earnings. A will is a fundamental estate-planning tool that carefully documents how to manage your affairs in the event of your death. If your affairs are not in order, it can cause unnecessary challenges for the ones you left behind. Protect your loved ones with smart estate planning.
A will is an estate planning tool that allows you to designate who receives your assets when you pass away. A will also allows you to choose a personal representative who will be responsible for taking care of your debts, distributing assets, and managing any other affairs you left behind. If you have a minor child, a will allows you to appoint a person responsible for their well-being in the event of your death.
The personal representative you select should be a responsible and trustworthy person. If your personal representative is irresponsible, unorganized, or difficult, this can lead to the mishandling of your estate.
No matter the size of your estate, it is beneficial to have a well-drafted will. A will is not just a document to describe who gets what after you have passed; it is a comprehensive plan for how your affairs are to be managed when you are gone. If you pass without a will, your estate will be distributed according to state intestate laws, without consideration for what your wishes may have been.
