Attorney Who Does Wills
What Should I Expect During the Will Writing Process?
The will writing process can seem intimidating, but with the help of a knowledgeable and experienced attorney, it can be a straightforward and stress-free experience. Here's what you can expect during the process:
Initial consultation: During your initial consultation with an attorney, you'll discuss your goals and the assets you want to include in your will. You'll also discuss any potential beneficiaries and any special circumstances that need to be taken into consideration, such as minor children or a family member with special needs.
Gathering information: Your attorney will need to gather information about your assets, including real estate, financial accounts, and personal property. They'll also need to know about any debts or outstanding obligations.
Drafting the will: Based on the information you've provided, your attorney will draft a will that reflects your wishes. You'll have the opportunity to review the draft and make any necessary changes.
Signing the will: Once you're satisfied with the final draft, you'll need to sign the will in the presence of witnesses. The number of witnesses required may vary by state, so be sure to check with your attorney.
Storing the will: It's important to store your will in a safe place where it can be easily accessed by your chosen executor after your death. Your attorney can assist with this process and provide guidance on the best options for your specific situation.
