Creating a last will and testament is a difficult task that many people unwisely choose to avoid. Decisions that affect the future of your family make it necessary for you to put your preferences in writing. Updating your will is much easier than creating it, however, and Attorney Joe Lucé can make it easier than you may think possible. At Lucé Law, PC, you have access to a trusted advisor who is an expert in business and family law.
Why Should You Update?
Your life is an ever-changing set of circumstances, and your will needs to reflect the changes that occur. In consultation with the attorneys at Lucé Law, you can update your will with regard to these important considerations:
- the people you name as heirs, executors, guardians, and trustees
- the status of assets such as properties or insurance policies
Your attorney may suggest additional areas that need your attention. Significant changes to wills are often related to people and assets, and those are probably the ones that concern you as well.
In the short span of a year, you can experience the loss of a loved one or the birth of a new baby. Relationships that you thought were permanent can change quickly, and you probably want to include new ones as they develop. You know your intentions, but they remain only in your mind unless you put them in your will. Estate planning with a McKinney attorney gives your affairs the legal standing that they deserve.
In stressful times, it is helpful to have a current document that provides clear instructions on your end of life preferences. Families have a chance to work together congenially when you enumerate your preferences properly with a McKinney attorney.
