What Is A Last Will and Testament?
A Last Will and Testament, commonly referred to as simply “a Will,” is drafted in order to protect your assets, should you pass away. Your Will outlines your assets and liabilities, who will inherit those assets, and how those liabilities will be paid. A Will does not become effective until you pass away. While it does outline your wishes, none of them will be enacted during your lifetime.
Your Will not only protects your assets, it also protects your loved ones. While the goal is generally to avoid probate court as much as possible, it is not always feasible. However, having a Will already created will certainly make the entire estate administration matter go much smoother in the long run.
A Last Will and Testament should always be drafted by an attorney in your domiciled state. You do not want to take the chance of drafting your own Will, or using an online generator, and having it ultimately be deemed invalid. Also, if you have had a Will drafted in one state and move to another, it may be worth meeting with an estate planning attorney in your new location to determine if your Will needs to be updated at all.
