A will is one of the most important legal documents a person can draft. It allows a person to dictate who inherits their assets and possessions upon death, and avoid the intestate process through which a court becomes involved in distributing assets. Dealing with the distribution of a loved one’s estate can be stressful for surviving family members and a clearly outlined will can help reduce this stress and deter potential conflicts among beneficiaries. Wills can also minimize the tax consequences associated with the transfer of a person’s belongings and ensure that family members continue to receive financial support. For more information about drafting a will, types of wills, wills and probate and estate planning attorneys, refer to the articles in this section.
