Have you put any thought into what will happen to your assets and debt when you are no longer here? Who will take care of getting your last and final payments? Who will sell your home? How will your property be divided? Everyone needs a will, no matter what the size your estate.
Talking this out with a lawyer from the law firm of Garton & Harris may help. We have two components when it comes to writing a will or an estate plan:
— Estate planning
— Estate administration
Estate planning is focused on your plan if you become incapacitated. It will also determine your asset distribution when you are gone. Estate administration assistance is mainly for family members who are responsible for seeing that your will and wishes are completely complied with. This can be a daunting job so you will need to think about who in your family can undertake this. This person is called your executor or administrator.
We can help you with either subject. We listen carefully and give you down-to-earth and reliable advice and tell you of your options. We have more than 30 years of experience under our belt and can relliably help you with your will.
This document can be as detailed as you want it to be. It can drill down to who gets the fine china and homemade quilts to who runs the company and gets the vacation home. You tell us how you see it happening and we will advise on the legal terms that will need to be addressed.
There is immeasurable comfort in knowing that your will is in place and your children will not have to argue with each other over who gets what.
