Baltimore, Maryland Lawyer | Helping You Draft Your Will
Often, people wonder whether they truly need an attorney to help them draft a will. The answer, emphatically, is “yes.” Drafting a will without an attorney drastically increases the chances of the will being inaccurately executed or altogether invalid in the eyes of the law. Hiring an attorney from the start, in most, if not all cases, will save your family time and money in the long run.
The Basics of a Will
The person who writes a will is known as the testator. The purpose of writing a will is to ensure the testator’s wishes are fulfilled upon his or her passing. As a testator, you will appoint an executor (the person who will carry out your will) and beneficiaries (the people who will receive your assets upon your passing). When a person dies intestate (without drafting a will), the distribution of property, as well as other critical decisions, will be left up to a judge. Rather obviously, decisions regarding who will inherit your property, who will raise your minor children (should you be unable to do so on your own), and more are best not left in the hands of a judge who doesn’t know your family as you do.
