Functions of a Stand-Alone Will
Preparing a stand-alone will is, historically, one of the most common forms of
estate planning. Preparing an iron-clad will can grant you peace of mind by ensuring that
your assets pass down to your chosen beneficiaries. Unfortunately, if
you elect to use a stand-alone will instead of or without a trust, your
estate will have to go through probate.
Our estate planning lawyer can help you write a stand-alone will that does
- Designates an executor to go through probate and carry out the terms of your will
- Leaves your property to the individuals you choose
- Leaves your property to an organization such as a non-profit
Bear in mind that probate may reduce your funds or affect some aspects
of distribution. Depending on your circumstances, a combination of a will
and a trust may be a more efficient means of protecting your interests
regarding your funds and property.
Manage Your Assets with a Pour-Over Will
A pour-over will is established with all
trusts, and serves as a catchall for any assets accidentally left out of the
trust. While any property not under a trust must go through probate, a
skilled attorney can help you maximize the reach of a trust and minimize
the amount of funds that pour over into your will. Contact The Woodbury

qualified to lead you through the estate planning process.
