A last will and testament is a foundational part of any estate plan, even if you have made alternative arrangements for the distribution of your assets. There are also things that only a will can do that other estate planning tools cannot, such as provide for the guardianship of minor children. That is why it is critical for everyone to establish a will with the assistance of an experienced and attentive attorney who can customize the document to their unique needs.
Get Help Drafting Your Last Will & Testament Today
With the proliferation of online do-it-yourself estate planning services, many people assume they will save more money by making their own will so they don’t have to pay attorney fees. However, drafting a will without the assistance of a reliable attorney can result in it being deemed invalid by the probate court. In order for a will to be valid, it must comply with certain legal formalities. If it does not, it will fail, and your assets will be distributed according to California’s laws of intestate succession, which will likely not reflect your wishes.
Some of the important formalities involved in drafting a will include:
- The will must be signed in front of two witnesses
- The two witnesses must sign the will
- Both of the witnesses must be disinterested parties
