While there are multiple kinds of wills, they all lay out your wishes regarding the distribution of your assets and the guardianship of minors under your care, should you pass away.
The most traditional will is referred to as a self-proving, or testamentary will and is a document the attorneys at the Johnson Law Group can draw up for you to then be signed by witnesses.
Writing a will is a selfless act. And while it can be tough, it’s important to provide for your loved ones if the worst should happen. Your will can grant power of attorney and spell out what decisions should be made if you cannot make them for yourself, and put an end to potential property battles amongst family when you do pass.
A trust is a legal agreement between the trust-maker, trustee, and beneficiary or beneficiaries. Unlike a will, trusts can be used for a variety of reasons, many of which come into action while the trust-maker is still alive.
When you draw up a trust with the attorneys at Johnson Law Group, you’ll create rules that are to be followed for a property held in trust for your beneficiaries.
Think in terms of trust fund recipients. Usually young adults who must achieve a certain goal before being granted monetary gains.
Your estate is made up of everything you own. No matter how large or small, we all have them. When you work with an estate planning attorney, you’ll be doing everything you would within a will or trust, and then some.
