Questions About Your Will
Writing your will can quickly become a confusing process that may require some answers. We’ve compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions and answers about your will.
What is a will?
A will is a legal document that advises your executor, or court, on how to care for your property after you have passed on. This is your chance to explain in-depth who, when, where, and what you want to have happen to your property once you’re gone. If you do not have a will, the courts will then decide what happens next.
What is included in your will?
A will includes any and all types of property you own. You might not realize it, but there are many different forms of property you own that will require action once you pass away. These are some of the most common things included in a will:
- real estate
- business ownership
- family heirlooms
- valuable personal items
How do I write a will?
One of the easiest ways to write a will is with the help of a lawyer. Your lawyer will tell you everything you need to know about what to include in your will. You will want to be specific about the details so there is no confusion in the future. When writing a will you need to choose an executor. This person will be in charge of carrying out the details of your will. It is important to choose someone you trust and will be responsible enough to handle this task. If you have children, and even pets, you need to pick a legal guardian just in case. Other details can be included in your will, and your attorney will help with that.
