Last will and testament

Your Last Will and Testament is a legal document that defines your final wishes regarding the distribution of assets and appointing an executor to manage your estate. It serves as a roadmap for the division of property, care for dependents, charitable donations, and your charitable wishes.

What is estate planning?

Estate planning entails making important decisions about: 

  • The distribution of your assets
  • Appointing guardians for minor children
  • Documenting healthcare preferences after you die

At Correa & Martinez Trial Lawyers, we specialize in estate planning and will work closely with you to understand your individual circumstances and goals to create an estate plan that’s tailor-made to you.

Estate planning tools

In estate planning, two common options are a last will and testament and a living trust. Both serve the purpose of distributing assets and ensuring your wishes are carried out after your passing.

What can a will do?

  • Flexibility: A will allows you to specify how you want your assets distributed and who will be responsible for carrying out your wishes.
  • Cost-effective: Creating a Will is generally less expensive than setting up a living trust.
  • Simplicity: It is relatively straightforward to create a will, especially for individuals with uncomplicated estates.

Advantages of a will and testament

  • Avoidance of probate: Assets held in a living trust can bypass the probate process, saving time and money for your loved ones.
  • Privacy protection: Unlike a will, a living trust remains private, minimizing the exposure of personal information.
  • Incapacity planning: A living trust allows for the seamless management of your assets if you become incapacitated.

Determining whether a last will and testament or a living trust is better depends on various factors, such as the size and complexity of your estate, your privacy concerns, and your specific goals. We can help you better understand the options and make an informed decision based on your circumstances.
