When a Will Is All You Need

Many people do not need a complex estate plan in order to manage the transfer of their assets. Most families are unaffected by the estate tax (sometimes called the "death tax") because they do not have sufficient assets to be taxed. For these people, a simple will is often sufficient - and cost effective.

A simple will can accomplish a variety of goals:

  • Name heirs and beneficiaries
  • Specify how property is to be divided among heirs
  • Name a guardian for a minor child
  • Specify one's wishes regarding funeral arrangements

If a family wishes to avoid the time and cost of probate, that can often be achieved without the cost of establishing a trust. Mr. Wells can explain how a beneficiary deed can transfer a home, and how the titling of assets in the name of an heir (for insurance policies, bank accounts, etc.) can ensure those assets are transferred without going through probate.

Providing for Minor Children or Disabled Adults

While a simple will can provide for the naming of a guardian for minor children or dependent adults, it is often wise to consider a contingent trust to enable the management of finances for these family members. Our lawyer can draft a contingent trust to protect assets against creditors and the imprudent management of an inheritance.

Simple Wills are Affordable Options

The Wells Law Firm offers a competitive flat fee rate for drafting a simple will (and a contingent trust, if that is needed). For more information about our estate planning services, contact The Wells Law Firm in Evergreen.
