Protect Your Family  – Complete a Last Will and Testament

Do you have a house (even if with a mortgage), a vehicle (even with a loan), a boat, a bank account, investments, collectibles or antiques?  Then you probably need a Last Will and Testament.

Just because you execute a Will once in your life does not mean that the Will can still accomplish your desires at your death.  We recently reviewed a Will that was over thirty years old.  Names had been changed, the witnesses to the Will were deceased but even worse the law had changed significantly during that time period.

There are several items required in a properly signed Last Will and Testament and if it does not meet the statutory requirements, the Last Will and Testament may be deemed unusable after a person dies and the estate will be probated as if there never was a Will.
