Protect Your Loved Ones By Establishing A Will
Although it is unpleasant to ponder, we must all face the reality that we will someday pass from this world. We owe it to our loved ones to create a plan that clearly lays out our final wishes while we are living. A will is the formal mechanism that allows us to officially declare how to distribute your assets and who should receive them.
Our team at the St. Louis law firm of TdD Attorneys at Law LLC understands the stress and anxiety that can be brought on by planning the division of your estate and establishing a will. Allow us to put your mind at ease and help you craft a plan to carry out your final wishes.
Which Format Meets My Unique Needs?
A will works best in conjunction with a trust in order to avoid probate court after your death. A trust, unlike a will, allows the individual or individuals you designate to have much more control over the distribution of your assets. The presence or absence of a trust will ultimately determine the type of will required. There are two primary types of wills:
- Pour-over will: Transfers or “pours” your assets at the time of your death to a trust.
- Simple will: In the absence of a trust, this document will control the full distribution of your assets.
