Will and Probate Legal Services
You will is one of the most important documents you will every produce, providing your family and friends with directions for the distribution of your wealth, property and other assets after your death. In order to create a will, you will need to contact a will and probate lawyer, who will provide you with all the legal advice you need before you sign your final document. There are four main topics that should be covered in your will. These include:
- Your Assets: What you own and how you would like to distribute it between your loved ones
- The People: Information about yourself, your executors and the beneficiaries of your will
- Your Funeral: Directions for those who will organise your funeral and wake
- Risks: Any taxes or other risks to your estate that should be considered by your loved ones
Probate is the process of dealing with the money, possessions and final wishes of the deceased. If the deceased has a will then he or she may have specified executors, and these people will be expected to carry out the probate process. If an executor has not been named, then someone must become the administrator of the estate, such as one of the beneficiaries or a blood relative. Probate can be a complicated process, and as such an experienced probate lawyer is likely to take control of many of the legal processes on behalf of the executor. This can remove some of the stress from the probate process and help those in control avoid any complications.
