Are you ready to draft a will but don’t know how to get started?
Do you have a will drafted but want assurances that it’s clearly written and legally binding?
While wills can be simple documents, ensuring that they are drafted correctly and are enforceable is critical to carrying out your wishes with regard to your possessions and the guardianship of children.
Additionally a will lawyer can assist with advance directive or medical power of attorney which can help you maintain control over your life decisions. Lawyers who specialize in the drafting of wills ensure that all the formalities required in drafting wills in your state are executed properly.
Even if your will is simple, and you believe you have all the requirements figured out, it's easy to make mistakes.
Each state has different requirements relative to witnesses, signatures, format, language, and other components.
Avoid potential problems with your will and ensure that it’s valid and legally enforceable.
A probate attorney can also help with the process of carrying out the wishes of your will.
You should inquire if your attorney is also a probate attorney.
