If you need a will but do not know where to start, we can provide you with information about how to create a valid will. When it comes to protecting your family and your assets, it is highly recommended that you have a will. If you do not create a Will, the law shall create one for you, which may or may not reflect your desires. Your will must reflect your desires for your beneficiaries and the handling of your assets as well as be tailored for your particular needs.
A successful will can perform the following functions:
- State how your assets, such as real and personal property will be distributed
- State how to pay your debts and taxes
- Name your executor
- Name guardians to care for your minor children
In order for your will to be made legal, you will need to sign it, have two witnesses sign your will, and have a notary sign a self-proving affidavit.
