Why Do I Need a Will?

Comprehensive Advice on Preparing a Will

In today’s economic turmoil and complex world, there are very few things that remain under our direct control. Fortunately, with some advanced planning and experienced legal assistance, you can control the distribution of your assets and other vital issues upon your death.

At Gorman & Jones, PLC, our Phoenix estate planning attorneys offer personalized and detailed advice on many estate planning issues, including the proper completion of a customized will.

Why do I need a will?

Without clear direction over your estate, your loved ones and the legal system will be forced to make many difficult and emotionally draining decisions. A will that clearly states your final wishes will limit the involvement the legal system has with your estate and can help your loved ones avoid unnecessary confusion and grief.

A properly prepared will serves many functions, including:

  • Designating distribution of your estate upon your death
  • Stating your wishes regarding the care of minor children
  • Eliminating unnecessary legal and emotional hardship on your loved ones’ behalf
  • Limiting the complexity of probate proceedings
  • Naming an executor, or individual to be in charge of carrying out your final wishes
