How Will an Attorney Help with Your Last Will and Testament?
It is a common misconception that you can simply fill out some documents online and have a legal last will and testament printed that will protect you and your beneficiaries. The reality is that a skilled Phoenix estate planning attorney should be involved in every step of this process. An attorney can help ensure that a full analysis of all assets has been completed and that the will has been properly written and filed in accordance with Arizona law.
Additionally, an attorney can help beneficiaries of a last will and testament upon a person’s passing. These issues can become contentious, but an attorney can provide an unbiased perspective for all involved.
What Is the Purpose of a Will?
A last will and testament will only control estate property of which the person who has passed had exclusive ownership. In other words, the co-owner of any property or a named beneficiary on the property will have superior rights to the assets versus a person named in the will. A last will and testament will also not help a person avoid the probate court process.
Nevertheless, a last will and testament in Arizona is an important legal document for various reasons, including:
- A last will and testament can designate an alternate guardian for minor children.
- A last will and testament can provide instructions for distributing personal effects, such as artwork, electronics, furniture, jewelry, and more.
- A last will and testament can designate an executor to pay final expenses, distribute assets, file tax returns, etc.
