When Should You Write a Will in Albany County?
Have you wondered whether it’s time for you to have a will drawn up? If you have children and you want to make your wishes known about who raises them, or if you own property and you want to make sure loved owns receive it after you die, you need to write a will. Without one, state law could override your intentions and loved ones might not benefit from your hard work through an inheritance. Even if you already have one, it might have been years since you looked at it. Here are three scenarios when you’ll want to make sure your will reflects your desires.
Major Family Changes
You probably have specific intentions about who will get your assets, such as your home, if something should happen to you. Those choices might change when you get married, have a child, separate from your partner or divorce your spouse.
Acquiring New Assets
People typically hope their estate, including high-value assets such as their house, jewelry, property, cars and investments, are shared with specific family members after they’re gone. When you buy property or other valuables, updating your will reduces the chances of lengthy and expensive court battles.
When you own your own company, you’re responsible for ensuring the continuity of operations, even if something happens to you. Writing a will is part of the future planning for your company. It avoids unnecessary distress experienced by your employees, customers and investors, which could harm your business.
