The Importance of Having a Will

If you were to pass away, would you be leaving children behind? Attorney Grant Mckeehan does not want his clients to fall victim to an unfortunate series of events and that is why I stress about the importance of estate planning. You hear of shocking stories where mothers suddenly pass away leaving two or more adult children behind without a will. The children being close try to negotiate and handle the administration of the estate themselves, then the estranged father comes back into the picture wanting a say in the property. Needless to say, instead of a smooth transitional probate process, the family is torn apart and spends all their savings on legal fees to battle it out in court.

By creating a will, you can have peace of mind that you and your family have a secure future, even in light of unexpected events. For the sake of the loved ones you will leave behind, be sure to do some estate planning before it is too late. This way, you can ensure that your assets and your property is distributing according to your wishes and your family may be able to avoid the complex probate process altogether. You never know what family member or relative will try to upset the balance and fight for more than they deserve. When you establish a will or a trust, you can also appoint an estate administrator to carry out your wishes, instead of having the court appoint one for you.

Secure a future for you and your loved one by speaking with Grant McKeehan at the firm today. He prepares wills and revocable living trusts on a regular basis and he can help ensure that our family, beneficiaries, close friends and your charities receive the assets you designated to them upon your death.
