When you have a change in your martial status, or had a baby, it’s the perfect time to update your will. This allows you to direct what happens to your assets and who will make important decisions on your behalf. For example, in the event of a tragedy, if you don’t have a will in place, the court could choose a family member to be the guardian of your children that is not the person you would want to raise them. Perhaps you have a close friend that knows your children better that you would like to be named?
From dealing with the clerk of court, preparing notifications, helping you understand the tax implications of your decisions and working to reduce any kind of internal family issues that could lead to probate disputes later on — there is no aspect of either the estate planning or probate processes that we leave to chance. Best of all, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your estate has been taken care of and that your desires have been expressed in way that minimizes the chances for future conflict among your heirs and beneficiaries.
