Get Legal Advice On Last Will and Testament

Creating a Will on your own can be overwhelming and time-consuming. Without the help of a lawyer, you may not have the peace of mind that your wishes will be communicated to your loved ones or that a court will honor your wishes. Most lawyers charge an average of $1,500 to draft a basic Will and Estate Plan. There is a better option. A LegalShield Plan starts at $26.95/month. It covers you and your spouse, and with the Advanced or Premium plan, even your children. All Personal & Family plans come with a Will drafted by your provider lawyer at no additional charge.

LegalShield makes Wills quick & simple

Eliminate family conflict

Part of our responsibility to our family is preparing for our passing and making sure that the legal aspects of our affairs are as organized and manageable as possible.

A Last Will and Testament (“Will”) is a legal document which provides who is to receive your property after your death, who will administer your estate, who will serve as guardian of your children, if applicable, and other provisions. It is important that your wishes are communicated to your loved ones and gives them guidance in making difficult decisions. Questions of guardianship of children and even pets may be left to the courts if you die without a Will.

Sadly, 35% of Americans say they have had some sort of family conflict due to a loved one dying without a Will. Without clear direction on distributing your assets, your family may be left without direction and may experience conflict.

A well-drafted Will helps make sure your loved ones are taken care of in the manner you wish, and that provides at least a small measure of comfort during a difficult time. Each state has laws governing Wills. Please contact your provider law firm for assistance.

Save time and money

If you pass away without a Will, it’s referred to as having died intestate. If this happens, a court must determine how to distribute your assets. The more this process drags on, the more fees and taxes your loved ones end up paying.

Without a Will, probate can consume your loved ones’ time for up to 2 years and eat up 3-7% of the value of your estate.

You can save your family from this probate nightmare by working with an experienced estate planning lawyer to make sure your estate is in order.

Plan for the unexpected

As your life changes, so should your Will. Major life events are often signs you should create, or update your Will.

  • Marriage
  • Engagement
  • Children
  • Retirement
  • Divorce
  • Purchase or Sale of home
  • Business ownership
  • Death of a loved one

Work with an experienced lawyer to create a Last Will & Testament which can be updated to accommodate your needs as your life changes.
