The Benefits Of A Will Concerning Your Estate

A properly worded will can go a long way toward helping you achieve your estate planning goals. But because of the California legal requirements concerning the validity of wills, retaining the services of a skilled estate planning lawyer can be essential.

A will provides many benefits. It expresses your intentions regarding distribution of your estate. A will provides directions to your executor in handling your estate. A listing of your belongings allows potential beneficiaries to understand what precisely is in your estate. This, in turn, will make the distribution process more efficient and less costly. Also, by listing your clear intentions, disputes concerning your estate are minimized. It decreases the chances that a court will make determinations regarding your estate instead of you.

There are also benefits to having a will that many individuals do not even know exist. For example, you can even appoint a guardian for your children in your will. And a will expresses your wishes concerning any funeral service.

With the added benefits a will provides, it is also important to understand that mistakes made when drafting a will can be costly. Mistakes can lead to expensive and lengthy will contests. Unclear provisions in the will may ultimately mean the court will decide how to divide your estate.
