Without a last will and testament, your estate may be subject to probate court proceedings. Work with Pamela J.

Ensuring Proper Execution Of Your Will

As your life circumstances change, it is important to keep your will up to date so that it stands following your passing. Changes in your family structure, such as marriage, divorce, or the birth of a child, can impact the distribution of your assets. Additionally, changes in state or federal laws may also affect the validity of your will. You will want an experienced will and trust lawyer to help you review and update.

Avoiding Intestacy Laws

To ensure that your will is valid, signed, and witnessed according to state laws, and enforceable so your estate does not fall back onto state intestacy laws, work with an experienced estate law attorney. Be sure to understand the legal implications of your decisions with the help of a professional estate law attorney.
