Helping Georgia Residents Draft Last Wills And Testaments
Some of the most important advice we offer our clients when they’re drafting their wills includes:
- Name an executor who you can trust: When it is time for your estate to be distributed through the probate and estate administration process, you want someone who you know will take the steps necessary to fulfill the executor’s duties and honor your wishes. Many times, this is a trusted family member, or it could be an experienced estate planning attorney.
- Do not go it alone: It is perfectly all right to come into your lawyer’s office with a plan in mind for distributing your assets. However, you should have your official will drafted and reviewed by an attorney so that no mistakes are made.
- Update your will when circumstances change: Did you get divorced and remarried? Do you no longer wish to leave anything to a beneficiary? Did you acquire more assets since you drafted the will? It is important for your will to be as up to date as possible.
