Wills & Powers of Attorney Mont Park
Wills play a significant role in managing your personal and business assets and call for meticulous planning and thought. Given the complexities of blended families, children with disabilities, and life changes, our team offers counsel and help in crafting your Will, defining the Executor of your Estate and the recipients of your assets (Beneficiaries).
The process of creating a Will is important to assure that all your loved ones are accommodated, and your assets are disseminated as per your desires upon your departure.
Although creating a Will can be intimidating, our team can navigate you through every step to decrease the chance of someone contesting your Will. Wills are usually disputed if a family member feels they were neglected or not sufficiently considered. Other sorts of disputes can emerge from perceived lack of capacity, undue influence, or violation of trust.
