A will is one of the most critical elements of an estate plan. Because of this, you will want to make sure that yours is prepared properly and will not cause you or your family trouble down the road. Do not wait to reach out to our firm today and speak with a dedicated and skilled  Butler County will preparation attorney today. Our legal team is on your side.

What are the benefits of a will?

It is important to recognize that drafting a will is one of the most important steps in the estate planning process. That is because it permits you to express how you would like your estate and assets to be allocated once you pass away. Without the creation of a will, you risk your assets getting distributed improperly. Furthermore, passing away without a will can also increase the amount of time needed by a court to complete the process which will also have additional expenses. You may also jeopardize your assets being distributed to persons who you would not have chosen as a beneficiary.

To learn more about the will creation process, it is in your best interest to reach out to our firm today and speak with an experienced estate planning attorney.

Why do I need an attorney to write my will?

While you may find an abundance of resources online that aid in creating a will without the help of an attorney, it is strongly encouraged that you have an experienced estate planning attorney on your side throughout the will-creating process. Employing an attorney to help you in the process of writing a will is a critical step. This is because an attorney is equipped with the knowledge and experience of estate planning that is required to create a will that is valid and functional.

By having an attorney through this process, you can feel more comfortable knowing that you will not face any possible loss generated by pitfalls in the wording of a will. An attorney will comprehend all of the potential legal traps that are likely in a legal document such as your will. A single misphrasing in your will has the possibility to change the product to something that you may not be happy with. A skilled Butler County will preparation attorney will work to ensure that this does not happen and will allow you to rest easy knowing that your will is valid and your wishes will be carried out.
