Bingham Farms Will Attorneys
Though many individuals find it difficult to face the prospect of planning for the future, it is important to create documents that communicate their wishes in the event of death. One estate planning document that is an effective tool is a will, also referred to as a “last will and testament.” A will contains information about your estate, details of your assets and how you wish your estate to be distributed.
At Bingham Legal Group PC, we are highly skilled in the area of estate planning. Our firm prides itself on offering comprehensive services regarding wills such as drafting and review. Our lawyers have more than 20 years of experience they use when tailoring your will to suit your individual needs and goals, along with any anticipated future needs you or your family may have. Contact us today to learn more about how we handle wills.
Risk Of Not Having a Will:
When an individual passes away without having a valid will, his or her property passes by what is called “intestate succession.” This means that your estate will be handled by the courts according to Michigan law. Unfortunately, this is rarely the best situation for beneficiaries and surviving loved ones. The legal process for evaluating and distributing an intestate estate can be long and complex, and there is no guarantee that the final result will match the wishes of the deceased person. Taking the time to create a comprehensive will and estate plan now will prevent court intervention and ensure your estate is handled in the way you desire.
Specifying Your Estate Plan Wishes:
We do not specify wishes in actual wills. We have a Funeral Representative Designation form, and clients can also leave instructions regarding care and/or funeral burial which is attached to the forms or included in the estate plan book.
