Wills & Trusts
There are many benefits to having a will-- relying on mere word and hope is not the best way to ensure that your estate and family are taken care of after death. A will dictates the distribution of your assets. You may also appoint a guardian to resume your role as parent should your spouse not survive. You may choose a personal representative, such as a family or friend. Your estate and gift taxes are minimized with a pre-determined will. Family battles and litigation may be avoided and your new family would be protected if you are in a second marriage.
Funeral instructions can also be set out in a will, such as whether or not to be cremated or buried. Living will's can also be drafted, providing instructions regarding life-sustaining procedures or medical treatments if you are no longer capable of making decisions for yourself.
