A will is an important part of planning for the care of your family in the event of your death. If you leave your family or loved ones without a will, there is no guarantee that your estate will be divided in the manner you would have wished. If you are in the process of estate planning, or just want more information, contact a Lillington wills attorney at Kelly & West today.
Why Do You Need a Will?
A will is a legally binding document, which distributes the assets of a deceased individual. A proper will names an executor who administers the estate, uses assets of the estate to pay all outstanding taxes and debts, and distributes the remaining assets to the people that the will has designated.
Intestate distribution is a process that occurs when a person dies without a will. In these cases North Carolina laws dictate which people receive assets, regardless of the possible wishes of the deceased.
Contact a Lillington Wills Attorney
Having an experienced attorney help you prepare your will is a crucial step in ensuring that it is valid and enforceable. If the requirements for executing a valid Will are not met, it can often lead to the same result as having no will at all.
A person who dies with a valid will can rest assured that their loved ones will receive everything they deserve. Contact Kelly & West today to get more information and start the process of protecting your family.
