Did you know that you don’t have to be rich to need a will? It is the only way you can be sure that your property goes directly to who you wish to have it.
More importantly, a will is the only way you can appoint guardians for your children. With so much riding on a single document, you definitely don’t want to rely on online or generic forms – 0nly an attorney knows what is valid under state law.
Because your financial situation will probably fluctuate over time, it makes sense to use percentages rather than specific dollar amounts when bequeathing assets.
It is also important to review your will every now and then – keep it up to date, especially when you retire or undergo other major financial changes.
If you do not have a will, or if your current will needs to be updated or reviewed, please contact me for a referral. I know a wonderful estate attorney who can make the process pain-free and much easier than you might imagine.
