6 Tips To Save You From A Nightmare!
Over the past few weeks, we’ve posted useful tips to guide you as you make or consider making your last will. Here’s a recap of them all. Read on to save yourself and your family from a legal nightmare.
If there's anything of sentimental value that you want to give to specific people, mention it in your Last Will. Don't rely on simply telling people. Make it easier by putting it in your will.
A handwritten signature holds more authenticity than an audio, video or digitally signed will.
Remember to name a guardian for your kids if they are below 18 years old. This is why Last Wills are of prime importance to parent(s) with young kids.
Named someone as the executor for your Last Will yet? Well, he/she is the one who'll wrap up things after you've departed--paying taxes, clearing debts, closing accounts, and distributing your assets as instructed by you in your will.
Unless matters are complicated (such as second marriage, too many assets, tax issues, etc.), you can create your last will yourself!
Unfortunately, there are a lot of cheap, daily discount Wills online. Here's how to discern a quality online last will service:1. Look for services that are interactive (not downloadable blank forms), 2. have been in place for a while, 3. have online help with phone and email support, and 4. a service that generates a final document that runs at least 4-5 pages. If it doesn’t, then it hasn't included all of the clauses that should be in a basic Will.
