What Is A Will?

A will is an estate planning document that directs how an individual’s estate will be distributed upon his or her death. A will designates how and to whom property is to be distributed, as well as other preferences to be carried out upon an individual’s death.

What Happens When Someone Dies Without A Will?

When an individual dies without a will, the state takes on the duty of distributing his or her estate. This is known as dying “intestate.” The process of administering an estate when the deceased did not have a will can be complex and difficult for family members, as they have little or no control over the proceedings.

When someone dies without a will and there are no immediate family members, the aunts, uncles and cousins may be the beneficiaries. Find out more about kinship.

Creating A Will Doesn’t Have To Be Hard

Creating a will is a task that is easy to put off. People come up with all types of excuses to delay creating a will. But it does not have to be a dreaded process. When you work with an experienced estate planning lawyer, the process can be swift and painless.

The attorneys at Joseph N. Yamaner and Associates can help you create a will that is specific to your needs, goals for the future and hopes for your loved ones. We help people of all ages and from all walks of life:

  • Young, recently married couples
  • Parents after the birth of a child
  • Recently divorced individuals who need to revise an existing estate plan or create a new one
  • Individuals who have lost a spouse or child and need to revise an existing will
  • Individuals who have experienced another change in life circumstances

A will allows an individual to transfer more than $5 million to beneficiaries, and a couple to transfer more than $10 million to beneficiaries while avoiding estate taxes. Talk to an estate planning lawyer for more detailed information.
