For many people, the thought of creating a will is something they would rather not think about or do. Unfortunately, waiting to create a will can create unnecessary hardship for your family should something happen to you.
The first step in creating a will is working with an estate planning lawyer, to ensure that all matters are addressed and in order. In Juneau County Wisconsin, an estate planning attorney will walk you through the steps of directing your assets, appointing guardians for your children, and declaring who will manage your property.
As each family has different goals and dynamics, it is vital to take the time to discuss the role that each person will have. Should something happen to you, you want to know the person you’ve assigned custody of your children too, is aware, able to take on the responsibility, and can financially support the new addition to their own family.
With each new life event, whether it be a wedding, a baby, or the purchase of a home, updating your will ensures that your loved ones will have peace of mind and know your wishes when you are gone. Our firm recommends reviewing your will annually to make sure it is still consistent with your long-term goals. Reviewing your estate plan is like going to a dreaded appointment, you’ll be anxious before but after you’ll have a sense of calmness knowing in your absence, everything will be okay.
