A will is an extremely important estate planning tool and having one in place at the time of death can significantly reduce the stress, time, and costs that your loved ones will have to deal with. This document allows you to clearly express your final wishes regarding how your money and property will be distributed.
At Leger Law Group, LLC, our Baton Rouge estate planning lawyer is able to help you create a will that is both legally sound and customized to your unique needs and goals. Call our firm at (225) 522-4996 to discuss your situation.
Wills provide an extensive array of benefits and are especially important if you have children or other family members that depend on you for financial support. With a will, you have the final say with respect to who should receive your estate and when they should receive it. A properly drafted will gives you the peace of mind you deserve, knowing that your loved ones will be cared for after you have passed.
One of the most important reasons to put a will in place revolves around what happens when you die without one. Without a will, you will be said to have died "intestate," and your estate will be handled and distributed according to intestate succession laws. This means that without your own will, the state will write one for you. By creating a will with our Louisiana estate planning attorney, you can avoid the uncertainty of an intestate succession.
