In Massachusetts, a will is a critical part of estate planning. The legacy of the person and their loved ones can be deeply affected by the quality and type of will. Before a will can be enacted, it must pass through probate. During this time, a badly written (or executed) will – or no will at all – can lead to stress and hardship as the court drags on between all parties. I want to share with you how to handle wills to avoid these issues.
When you start estate planning as a young family, there tend to be some differences involved, especially if you have young children. You need to ensure that your family will be financially sound and that there is a plan for them if you were to pass away. It’s important as a younger family to have at least a basic estate plan in place, to guarantee your wishes for your children are carried out.
