Experienced Estate Lawyer preparing Comprehensive Wills for Clients Throughout Contra Costa County, California
A will serves many purposes. It names a trusted person to handle the transfer of the estate and directs the transfer. It can appoint a guardian, should children or vulnerable adults be left behind. Narrative text can express feelings and final communications. Finally, you can avoid any confusion or disputes by clarifying the status of a former spouse or step-children. Even if you have a trust, you still need a will.
It is essential to create a carefully crafted estate plan in order to maximize what you leave to your loved ones and minimize the expense and time associated with probate.
