Probate & Wills
Drafting a will is the best way to insure that your loved ones are taken care of when you pass away.
A will enables you to insure that the people that you choose become the guardians for your minor children if something should happen to you. A will also allows you to designate the individuals that will receive the assets that you have accumulated during the course of your life. Without a will, the guardian for your children will be appointed by the state and your assets will be distributed in accordance with the law. To insure that your children are protected and your assets go to the benefit of the individuals you choose, it is imperative that you have a will.
Our firm is available to help you understand the important aspects of probate and wills.
Drafting a will is only the first part of a two part process. In order for a will to be effective, it must be probated. During the stressful times in the wake of the death of a loved one, our firm can relieve you of much of the burden of insuring that the deceased’s will is properly recognized by the state and the wishes of the deceased are put into effect.
Wills can vary in length and size. Some wills take the form of a simple, one page document. Other wills may take the form of a more complex document based upon the scale of your estate. Working with Mark will help you to understand what the appropriate length of your will should be.
Aside from proper preparation and organization of a will, you have the opportunity to get a better understanding of issues that can significantly effect the future of an estate. Contact the Law Offices of Mark A. Bandy, P.C. today for a free initial consultation!
