A Will Ensures Your Wishes Will Be Followed
A large percentage of people work hard and save diligently, yet neglect to properly provide details about how they want their assets to be treated when they die. Admittedly, it is not pleasant to think about your own passing by drafting a comprehensive will, but it may cause a host of problems for your family or other loved ones if you don’t.
If you die without a will, it is known as dying intestate, and the New Jersey laws of intestacy will determine who receives your assets. This may or may not adhere to your own wishes.
Why It’s Important To Establish Powers Of Attorney
At the Law Office of Michelle R. Katz in Jackson, we help New Jersey residents draft and update wills. This includes establishment of financial power of attorney and health care power of attorney. With these documents in place, your loved ones will have specific instructions provided by you that explain your wishes regarding end-of-life care and who you designate to make decisions on your behalf if you no longer are able to do so.
Attorney Michelle R. Katz will take the time to learn your objectives in order to structure a will that reflects your life and your wishes.
Peace Of Mind With Minimal Effort
Many people avoid drafting a will because they fear it is a complicated process that costs a lot of money. It’s neither. With a minimal amount of preparation on the client’s part before we meet, we can usually create a comprehensive will and powers of attorney with only one office visit. We will draft the documents and present to you in no time for your review.
If you have an existing will that has not been reviewed in five years or more, it is a good idea to have us review those documents to ensure they still reflect your wishes. Changes that occur in life — divorce, death of a loved one, birth of grandchildren, etc. — often change your wishes regarding assets and beneficiaries.
