Make sure your final wishes are honored with a legally binding last will and testament.
Nobody really wants to think about the end of their life, but proper estate planning is important to protect your assets and your loved ones. This is especially important if you have minor children, as you will need to name a guardian for them in the event of your passing. While there are laws that automatically determine how assets are divided if you do not have a last will and testament in place, these laws rarely represent your wishes, and your assets can end up in probate, inaccessible to your loved ones for a period.
The best way to make sure your final wishes are honored is with a legally binding last will and testament. From a simple will to a more complex document, you can turn to us at TriCity Lawyers for all your estate planning needs in the Durham, North Carolina area. We will take the time to get to know you and understand your goals for your loved ones and your assets, allowing us to make recommendations based on our expertise and experience. We will work tirelessly to make sure the documents we prepare for you truly reflect your wishes.
Once you have a last will and testament in place, it is important to revisit it from time to time to make sure it is still valid to your current circumstances. Any time you experience a major life change – like the birth of a new child, the death of a family member, or even a career change, you should review your last will and testament with us to make any needed changes. Contact us today with any questions you may have regarding your estate planning needs.
