Your Will & Testament

Your Will & Testament

A Will is a legal document that deals with your assets and the custody of minor children in the event of your death.  While the actual number may vary depending on what study you are looking at, it is estimated that nearly 60% of American do not have a Will.  However, every adult who has a child or owns any property should have a Will.

A Will provides several important things:

  • Provides you the opportunity of naming a legal guardian for children under the age of 18
  • It lets you leave instructions on how you want your property divided
  • You can name an executor to handle wrap up of your affairs
  • A Will can also be an important part of estate planning to minimize the tax burden when giving your property away.

A valid Will needs to be in writing and is needs to be signed and witnessed.  You need to be 18 years of age or older and be deemed to be mentally competent.
