Experienced New Jersey Trust and Estates Attorneys Can Draft Your Last Will and Testament
A will is essential at every stage of your life. Your will provides you with the opportunity to distribute your property, establish care for your children and otherwise express your wishes upon your death. A will is necessary if you intend to leave property to somebody besides a blood relative, such as a domestic partner, friend or charity. If you die without a will, the court determines how your property is distributed, who cares for your children and even what happens to your beloved pet — decisions that might not reflect your desires.At the law offices of Brown & Karosen, our attorneys can draft a valid will that ensures your intentions are honored.
Changing your will
As your life changes, so might your estate plan. You may need to update your will throughout your life. Law Offices of Brown & Karosen drafts valid codicils that address changes in your financial situation, marital status, numbers of children, philanthropic interests and general lifestyle decisions.
Appointment of guardianship
Your will allows you to make decisions about the future care of minor children, elderly relatives and special needs adults. If you do not name a guardian, the court will appoint a guardian for your loved ones and can make decisions adverse to your ultimate caretaking goals. You can also make arrangements and appoint a guardian for your pets’ care in your will.
