What should be included in my will?

When you make the decision to start planning for the future of your estate, you may want to think about creating a will. A will is one of the most important documents a person will draft in their lifetime. This is the way in which you will decide what happens to your assets when you are gone. A will allows you to have control over the future of the things you have worked so hard for. It is essential that you have a will to make sure that your family isn’t left with that burden during the emotional time after you pass away.

In your will, you should include assets such as real estate, cars, family heirlooms, liquid funds, securities, and any other personal belongings that you own. You can really include anything that you own in your will, no matter how big or small or expensive the item is.

You should be sure to update your will when you get married, get divorced, have a child, or have a drastic change in relationship with someone included in your will. If one of the people you have included in your will passes away, be sure to update it.

If you need guidance when creating a will, it is important that you consult with an experienced wills, trusts, and estates attorney in California who can provide you with assistance.
