Church & Associates, P.C., Attorneys at Law. The firm’s lawyers help you develop a last will and testament that’s in compliance with California law, allowing your assets to pass freely to your heirs in a swift manner.
Why you need a last will and testament
There are many different types of wills available to you, but all of them essentially serve the same purpose — to protect your assets after you pass away. The type of will that’s best for you depends on your situation and the kind of property you would like to transfer. A Redlands attorney at James B. Church & Associates helps you review your estate and make the best possible decisions, while developing a plan that prevents your heirs from contesting a will or trust later.
Regardless of the type of will you choose, you need to complete the following tasks:
- Assign an executor. A will identifies the executor, or the person charged with administering the will and ensuring assets are divided per the wishes of the will’s creator.
- Appoint a guardian. A will names a guardian for the creator’s minor children and assigns assets to be used to cover the children’s needs.
- Name beneficiaries. The primary purpose of a will is to name the persons who will inherit the signer’s assets. In California, it’s necessary to direct assets if they are to go to someone other than immediate family members.
