When Should You Create a Will?

It is never too late to begin planning for the future, and there are many reasons you should consider establishing a will now. You also do not need to wait for your retirement to develop a will.

Wills are flexible and can be drawn up in a personalized manner, designed to meet your personal needs. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to will drafting, and our Sarasota wills lawyers can help you prepare a new will or update an existing will.

What Are the Benefits of Having a Will?

With a will, you can:

  • Establish guardians for minor children or children with special needs
  • Establish long-term care plans
  • Identify who will receive what assets and property
  • Name specific Personal Representatives (executors) and trustees
  • Establish trusts for beneficiaries
  • Set out your funeral and burial wishes
  • Plan for estate taxes and other financial issues

If you have specific ideas on how you want your estate administered and divided after your death, you might want to consider establishing a will.

For example, you may want to leave money to your children, but you do not want them to inherit it all at once. Alternatively, you may wish to be cremated, and want to ensure your loved ones know. All of these things can be laid out in a will, ensuring that your wishes are known and honored.

What Is a Contested Will?

Contested wills are not common but when someone’s will was coerced or unduly influenced, contest may be appropriate. Do you need to contest a will, or are you associated with a will that is being challenged? It is prudent to speak with experienced contested wills attorneys in Sarasota to ensure your rights are protected.
