Last Will and Testament

Your last will and testament is a legal document declaring how you’d like your estate or property managed upon your death. By reflecting your wishes, a last will and testament creates peace of mind that one’s death won’t cause any unnecessary stress or frustration for your loved ones. This is ever more important with today’s families and the complexities that come with planning for divorce, remarriages and financial issues.

The last will and testament is supervised under probate court to ensure it is valid and executed properly. It can include the following and more:

  • Who is in charge of the estate as the executor
  • How to distribute possessions and property, whether to a person or charity
  • How property or money should be used to provide for any minor children
  • Naming a guardian of your children
  • How remaining investments should be managed and by whom
