The Importance Of Having A Will

The last will and testament is one of the most important legal documents a person can have. It is also one of the most neglected legal documents. People tend to only think about a will once they are older or are going through a life-changing event.

The reality is that every adult benefits from having a will as part of an estate plan. Having a will allows you to specify whom you would like to inherit your assets in the event that you die. Failing to have a will in place if you die could create unnecessary headaches for your loved ones. Speaking with a skilled estate planning lawyer can help prevent issues from arising.

Don't Risk Dying Intestate

Failing to have a will at the time of death means that you died "intestate." This causes your assets to be distributed based on intestate succession laws in Kentucky. These laws are confusing and may ultimately result in a distribution of assets that does not reflect your wishes.

Creating a will does not have to be a complicated process. At The Law Office of Fred Simon, I work with clients to draft effective wills at an affordable price. For more than 40 years, I have helped clients write wills that reflect their wishes and help them achieve their estate planning goals.

In addition to preparation of wills, I also work with clients to prepare powers of attorney and living wills. This allows you to have control over your medical and financial decisions if you are incapacitated in the future.
