What You Might Want in Your Will
Another reason why so many people prefer to use wills for the body of their estate plans is that they are flexible. States do not impose a specific format for wills, and so you can craft it to your liking, assuming that you do not overstep your legal boundaries. By working closely with our clients, never rushing them ahead, and truly getting to know them, our Temecula will attorneys are well-equipped and prepared to make exactly the will that you want.
In your will, you might want to include information or instructions regarding:
- How to distribute your property or assets to named beneficiaries.
- Who should be your estate’s administrator or executor.
- Who you think should be guardians for any young children in your will.
- How your estate should be used to repay any remaining debts or tax obligations.
- What to do about your pets.
- How your will should be used alongside any living trusts.
One misconception about wills is that they are used to declare how you want your funeral or burial to be carried out. In many cases, a will is not reviewed until weeks after a person passes away. Since final rites are completed typically within just a few days, any instructions written in a will become moot. You can talk to our estate planning attorneys about other ways to make your wishes for your own final arrangements known, such as a separate recording or instructions in a trust.
