Do You Need A Will Or A Trust?

Our goal is to create clearly written wills and trusts that prevent misunderstandings from arising later on. We are experienced, hardworking, and reliable wills and trusts attorneys. The will and trust our attorneys create for you fully state your intentions regarding your estate, take into account all of your assets and comply with Delaware laws. We address every item and make sure you understand your documents.

Creating Your Last Will And Testament

Wills are highly personal documents. A well-drafted will ensures your estate is properly distributed according to your wishes. Should you wish for a certain amount of your money to be sent to a specific charity, then your will needs to clearly state your intention.

A poorly drafted will or not having a will could result in a costly dispute for your loved ones down the road. Also, your will may not be honored if the document does not comply with applicable law. This results in courts distributing your estate assets according to the law rather than your wishes.

Establishing Your Trust

While a will is an invaluable estate planning tool, probating a will is time-consuming and expensive. When wills go through probate, the probate process must conclude before distribution of assets to beneficiaries.

Trusts, on the other hand, allow distribution of assets without the need of going through the probate process. Trusts authorize trustees to distribute trust assets while minimizing the time and expense required for the distribution to take place. If properly worded, money and assets in the trust are sheltered from certain taxes and other expenses.

Whether it's a trust or will, using a form downloaded from the Internet never serves all of your needs. Our attorneys prepare wills, charitable trusts, special needs trusts, life insurance trusts, pet and gun trusts, and other kinds of trusts designed to meet your specific goals.
