Atlanta Attorney Helping You Prepare Your Will
Why You Need An Attorney’s Help During This Process
While many websites offer simple “do-it-yourself” wills, there are many important questions that you may not think about, which could lead to disputes during the probate process. An attorney like Mr. Ratterree can help you with situations such as:
- Deciding which sentimental belongings should go to which person
- Leaving some property to friends or to charity
- Leaving your estate in proportions other than those the legislature would have chosen for you — either for tax or “real life” reasons
- Ensuring your heirs receive their inheritance in trust rather than outright — at least until they are older, have finished their education or some other condition
- Leaving a second spouse money in trust for his or her life, then guarantee that the money will go to the children of the first marriage upon the second spouse’s death
- Providing for an elderly, sick or disabled relative
Mr. Ratterree has dealt with numerous clients who started out with the best of intentions but were victims of poor planning. When you work with a lawyer like Mr. Ratterree, you can have peace of mind knowing that your will addresses every detail.
