What is a Will?

Everyone who owns anything should have a will. A will puts you in charge of directing others to distribute your wealth according to your wishes upon your death. Without a will or other estate plan, you will have no control and the state’s rules determine who gets what after your death. For many reasons, the creation of a will is about passing your wealth to your loved ones after you pass. A will can put your wishes down on paper and direct a selected person to carry out your desires exactly as expressed.  Schedule a consultation with Attorney, Feliz Martone to learn more about how to get your own will or trust set up.
