When it comes to planning, wills are a way to help your family navigate what can be a stressful time. Wills are often the main document in an estate plan. While there are many websites that offer generic, fill in the blank services to create a will, creating a detailed, valid will that is guaranteed to serve your family after you’ve passed away isn’t something you should trust a random website with. Wills can be complicated, especially with a larger estate or bigger family. Hiring an experienced estate planning attorney to help you put together a will that fits your needs and budget.

Why Should I Create A Will?
Without a last will and testament, the disbursement of assets can be complex at best and contentious at worst. A will effectively eliminates the question of who gets what after your death. A will dictates who is in charge of administering your will, and which beneficiaries will inherit which assets. A will makes the entire process after your death much simpler for your family. A professional will, drafted by an experienced lawyer, will take the guesswork out of the process and make probate much easier for your family.
Can an Estate Planning Attorney Make Changes to My Will?
An estate planning attorney can modify your will, using something called a codicil. Your attorney can adjust your will however you see fit, whenever you need. Life and family evolve, be it a death in the family, a new marriage, or the birth of a child. Updating your will regularly is crucial in making sure your beneficiaries get what you want them to. That said, if it’s been a long time since you last updated it and there are a lot of changes, your best move may be destroying your old will and having an attorney create a new one. Either way, our law firm can assist you with any will-related needs.
