Why do you need a will?

by | Nov 2, 2015 | Wills |

When you are facing your life in general, you can easily see that there are assets and property that must be dealt with should you pass away. A will is a part of your estate plan that can outline exactly what you want to see happen to your assets when you are no longer here. It is a common tool in estate planning. At Weistein & Randisi in New York, we know how to guide you through the process of putting a will in place that will stand up to litigation, is clear and concise and will be able to say what you want done.

Your plans can change over time so it goes without saying that your will may change as well. Unfortunately, people pass away, become distant or are no longer a part of your close circle. Changing your will is something that is important if this type of thing has happened to you. We can help you modify your will or even draft a new one if you think it is necessary.

A will, or a last will and testament, is simply a document that is legal and tells the court exactly what you want to happen to your assets and property when you die. Too many people believe that a will isn’t necessary because they aren’t rich and have only a few assets. Nothing could be further from the truth. Your children deserve to know who gets what. Does one child love your family heirlooms, while another just really wants all the old photograph albums? You need to ensure that there will be no infighting. Putting a will in place will do this for you and your heirs.
