Wills And Probate — For Your Future

Regardless of your age or health, it is never too early to have a will. Preparing for the end, although an uncomfortable concept, is the best way to ensure that your family is taken care of after you are gone.

And having an experienced, knowledgeable probate lawyer draft your will can help ensure that your wishes are carried out as you intended. When dealing with extremely important matters like financial security, beneficiaries and the care of minor children, it is imperative that a forward-thinking attorney who understands the ins-and-outs of probate law, as well as your needs and desires, help you draft a document that is workable and enforceable.

Take Care Of Your Family, Protect Their Future

At Moody Law Office, PLLC, we are dedicated to helping our community and preserving the legacy of our friends and neighbors. We can help you with a number of will, probate and estate issues and provide you with sound, practical advice on what to do (and not to do) in terms of planning for the future. We provide clients and their families creative solutions and answers to their pressing questions, including:

  • What is my estate? When a person dies, their estate is automatically born. The person in charge of your estate (the administrator or executor) has the legal authority to determine how your money, possessions and assets are distributed, how your remains are disposed of and how any minor children are cared for.
  • What happens if I die without a will? If you have a will, you can name the administrator in your will and provide direction on how to distribute your assets, etc. If you do not have a will, however, a court will name an administrator who will determine how to distribute your assets — all without any direction or guidance from you.
  • Can I distribute my property however I want? With a will, a person can essentially direct exactly how his or her property should be distributed, but there are a few exceptions: In some cases, a spouse and children may have a right to certain property, and debts must be paid before property is passed to your named beneficiaries.
