The Choice For You

Wills are legal documents that allow you to dictate how your property and assets are to be distributed either after you die or in the event you’re incapacitated and unable to make decisions or express them yourself. They outline instructions and designate an executor to carry them out. They can even serve as the means by which you appoint a guardian for any minor children you may have.

Frequent review and revision of your Will is important. Although some people update their Will more often, we recommend reviewing it at least once every 3 to 5 years, or after a major life event occurs (e.g. marriage, divorce, birth, death, etc.).

Some key differences between a Will and a Trust:
  • A Will can only go into effect upon your death, while a trust can manage property during your life and after your death.
  • Individuals can only have one valid Will at a time, while you can have as many trusts as needed to protect your property.
  • A Will often goes through probate court, while a Trust will typically avoid probate, saving your beneficiaries time and money.
  • A Will that is probated becomes a public document after your death, while a trust almost always remains private.
A Will can name a guardian for minor children while a Trust can not name a guardian for minor children.

Will is a legal document regarding an individual’s wishes regarding their assets after their death. A Will is only a single piece of a larger Estate Plan. An Estate Plan is a collection of legal documents that go beyond that of only a will. Often estate plans include components such as a will, trusts, powers of attorney, healthcare directives, etc.

Your individual circumstances will dictate the type of Will that will meet your needs. Please reach out to Mateskon Law for your free consultation today. >> Schedule a Consultation <<
