A thorough, well-thought-out will is the cornerstone of every good estate plan. It is the document that states how your estate assets should be distributed after your death. It can also be used to provide instructions for your personal representatives and other matters. The last will and testament is different from a living will. A living will is a type of health care directive that tells medical professionals how you want your end-of-life care handled.
Some people wrongly assume that a will is all they need for their estate plans. While a will is certainly a critical first step, it is important that you have a well-rounded estate plan that provides the most benefit for you and your beneficiaries. At Creighton McLean & Shea PLC in Livonia, we will help you draft a will that clearly defines your wishes and provides the roadmap your family needs to settle your estate.
Skillful Representation For The Drafting And Execution Of Your Will
The language used in your will is very important. It needs to be presented in a way that leaves as little room for interpretation as possible. If there is ever a disagreement among your beneficiaries regarding alleged conversations or promises that were made, a clearly written will can take a lot of the confusion out of the conversation.
Our attorneys take the time to fully understand your goals and draft a will that presents them in the most definitive manner possible. When the time comes to settle your estate, we will be there to guide your representatives through the probate process and address any disputes that may arise. In everything we do, our only concern is to see that your wishes are honored and that your beneficiaries receive the assets you intend.
