A Will is Your Command to Those who Survive You… It tells them what you want to happen, when, how, and by whom. The will can also provide as much or as little detail as you choose. You can set up a trust for a disabled person, create a special provision for a preferred heir, a charity, or even a company. The will is opportunity to ‘say it your way”. You can also forgive debts owed to you, give maximum flexibility to those who will administer your estate, pay taxes, and perform other duties.
To avoid a will contest after your death it is important when you make the will that you are of clear mind, not under the influence or duress of another person, situation, or substance. At least one uninterested witness must be present and you must sign a date the will. Other considerations include Living Wills and durable Power of Attorney, which can express your wishes in the event you are incapacitated.
