Customizing Wills To Address Your Concerns
At The Law Office of Denise D. Nordheimer, Esquire, LLC, our goal is to create clearly written wills that prevent misunderstandings from arising later. We are experienced, hardworking and reliable attorneys. The will our lawyers can create for you shall fully state your intentions regarding your estate, take into account all of your assets and comply with Delaware laws. We shall address every item and make sure you understand your documents.
Expressing Your Estate Plan In A Last Will And Testament
Wills are highly personal documents. A well-drafted will ensures that your estate is properly distributed according to your personal choices. Should you wish to set aside a certain amount of money for a specific charity, your will needs to clearly state that intention.
Not having a will or having a vaguely drafted one could result in potential costly and disruptive future litigation among your loved ones. Also, the court may invalidate and refuse to honor your will if the document does not comply with applicable law. This results in the probate court applying state law rather than your individual wishes in deciding how distribute your estate assets.
Taking Legal Steps To Help You Avoid Probate
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.
Our firm offers comprehensive estate planning services, so we are equipped to design legal instruments that help you streamline probate or avoid it completely. When you hire us, we shall review your financial statements, deeds and other important documents that may affect the estate administration process. We shall then identify the most effective approach for settling your estate.
