Why Go For A Last Will And Testament?

Commonly known as a “will,” a Last Will and Testament is a legally binding document that outlines your preferences for estate distribution. It serves several crucial purposes:

Asset Allocation

Your will designates how your property, financial assets, and personal belongings will be apportioned among your selected beneficiaries.

Guardianship Nomination

For those with minor children, the will permits you to nominate a guardian to care for them in the event of your passing.

Executor Designation

By naming an executor in your will, you are ensuring that your wishes will be carried out according to what you intended.

Debt Settlement

Your will addresses the resolution of any outstanding debts, ensuring your estate’s financial obligations are met.

Peace of Mind

Drafting a will guarantees that your loved ones will be cared for and your legacy will be managed as you see fit.

What Happens If You Don’t Have A Will?

If you pass away without a last will and testament in place, the probate court will follow the intestacy laws to distribute your property. Your property will go to your immediate family based on the laws. However, if you don’t have immediate family, your nieces and nephews will inherit your property. Sometimes, people don’t have living immediate family members or nieces or nephews. Then, the probate court will distribute the property to distant relatives, and if that is not possible, the state will get your property. Having a will prevents the state from seizing your property and ensures it goes to the family, friends, and charitable causes you care about the most.

Non-Probate Assets

Non-probate assets can skip probate and go directly to your beneficiaries. Non--probate assets include all assets that you hold in a trust, as well as the proceeds from insurance policies and retirement accounts. Payable on Death and Transfer on Death accounts also avoid probate. In addition, all property that you own jointly will bypass probate. For example, if you own a home with your spouse, it won’t have to go through probate when you pass away. Instead, your spouse will become the sole owner of the home. California Probate and Trust, PC will help you determine which assets will go through probate and which ones won’t when making your last will and testament.

Revoking And Changing A Will

California law allows you to revoke or make changes to your will if you wish. If you want to revoke your will, you can cancel or destroy it. You also have the option of making a new will that contradicts the old will, or you can state that you are revoking your old will in your new will. If you prefer, you can change your existing will instead of revoking it and start over. R. Dustin McFarlane can make the changes on your behalf.

Are Oral Wills Valid?

Some people make oral or video wills, thinking that they are valid. The state only recognizes written wills, meaning wills that are handwritten or typed. After creating the will, you have to sign it. It also needs the signature of two witnesses. If you have only communicated your wishes with others, you must get it in writing, or you won’t have any control over how your property is distributed.
