Hayward Wills Lawyer - Hayward Estate Planning Law Firm

Hayward Wills Lawyer

Experienced Estate Planning and Will Drafting Lawyers in California

While a trust helps you lower your estate taxes and can save your family from having to go through probate, naming the guardian of a minor and specifying your last wishes can only be done via a will.

If your will is not drafted carefully with assistance from an experienced attorney who knows what he or she is doing, it can be contested due to duress, forgery, fraud, improper execution, lack of testamentary capacity, misrepresentation, mistake, revocation, or undue influence. In sum, every word counts.

For these reasons, drafting your own will without the expertise of someone who knows state estate planning can be dangerous. Keep in mind that the federal and state rules, including those that apply to taxes, are constantly in flux; thus, you really should work with a professional whose job it is to stay on top of these changes.

Your Will is One Part of Your Estate Plan

When you work with an Hayward estate planning law firm, you are not just drafting a will; you are coming up with an entire estate plan. A will is simply one part of your estate plan, which, as a whole, is designed to prepare your family for your disability or death. Without one, you could end up paying significant court costs, professional fees, and taxes.

A “Living” Will

In addition, more than likely, your will will need to be updated from time to time, and you will want to work with your attorney on that. As life changes—you have children, they have children, you may divorce and marry again, etc.—your estate plan must also be able to adapt.
