A customized and legally sound Last Will and Testament is a key part of any estate plan. This document allows you to address exactly how property and assets will be distributed when you pass on. You can make sure your wishes are followed to the letter, ensuring that your loved ones are cared for in the manner you envision, with the added benefit of preventing your beneficiaries from arguing or litigating over assets.
We cannot necessarily control the time or manner of our passing, but we can influence what happens after we move on. Our Friendship Heights will attorneys at DiPietro Law Group, PLLC can work closely with you to make sure your goals are clearly identified and addressed in your will. Self-made wills and those made by filling out online forms may be left open to interpretation and may even be deemed invalid. You need to be certain that your Last Will and Testament will hold up during the administration of your estate.
For experienced will drafting, revision, revocation, and review services, contact our office today. Your best interests are our primary concern.
The Advantages of a Legally Sound Will
When a person dies without a will, Maryland intestacy laws and procedures will go into effect. The state will determine how the estate is distributed, without concern for the wishes of the deceased. Loved ones could be left without support and assets could be left open to taxation. Guardianship of your minor children, if you have any, will also be determined by the state.
With a Last Will and Testament, you can:
- Specifically name beneficiaries and the share of your assets or particular items that they will receive.
- Provide for your partner, stepchild, or other loved one that would otherwise be passed over.
- Name a guardian for your minor child or children.
- Address business succession, if you own part or all of a company.
