Let Our Estate Planning Lawyers Help You
Preparing for the future can sometimes feel overwhelming, which is why
our estate planning lawyers are here to guide you every step of the way.
If something were to happen to you tomorrow, it’s important that
you know your family is taken care of and your properties and assets are
protected. The best way to make sure all of your ducks are in a row is
to establish a legal will as a part of your estate plan.
Call our firm at (312) 702-0878 to get started on your estate plan.
The Importance of Establishing a Will
A will is one of the most common documents in an estate plan and does the
bulk of the work in dividing a person’s assets upon their death.
You may use your will to designate who will receive your property, personal
possessions, family heirlooms, funds, and other assets. A will can be
as specific as needed, stipulating how assets should be divided and any
conditions for the intended beneficiaries. This means the owner of the
will may put conditions upon inheritance. For example, the owner of the
will may only wish for her nephew to inherit her home if he is over the
age of 25, which she may stipulate in her will.
Guardianship & Wills
Besides designating the inheritance of physical possessions and funds,
the will may also be used to appoint a guardian. For children under the
age of 18, the will may appoint them a guardian, and a back-up guardian
in case the first choice is for any reason unable to accept.
