You don’t have to be an expert on wills and trusts. I’ll explain everything to you so you can develop a plan that makes sense for you. You can rely on my decades of experience to get answers to questions like:
What is a will?
A will is a legal document outlining your final wishes for your property and other affairs when you die.
What are the requirements to create a will?
Creating a will only requires you to be 18 years old and of sound mind, with special exceptions for military personnel. The will must also be signed with two witnesses present.
Does the will have to be written?
While written wills carry the strongest weight, spoken wills are valid for assets up to $1000.
What’s the difference between a will and trust?
A will is public record and a trust isn’t. Trusts also don’t have to go through the probate process and are more flexible, giving you the power to add or remove assets and beneficiaries at any time.
Should I use a trust instead of a will?
A will is always the first step of the process. You can have a will without a trust, but you can’t have a trust without a will.
Do I need to go through probate?
Assets like joint property, life insurance, living trusts and retirement accounts don’t have to go through probate. You’ll have to go through probate to make arrangements for most other items that might be outlined in a will.
