People don’t like to think about dying, but tomorrow is not promised to anyone. If you die without a will or a trust, those you leave behind will not only suffer and grieve your loss, they will also have to devote time and attention to gathering your assets and deciding who gets what. This can lead to many problems, including in-fighting, and can cause an enormous amount of distress, delay, and expense as your survivors go about dealing with your estate. Further, if you die without a will, the State of Arizona has laws which will dictate who will get your property. Finally, if you don’t have a will in place at the time of your death, you will have opened up the possibility of a long and protracted legal battle between your relatives, friends and/or partners.
The only way to ensure that your loved ones will benefit from your estate according to your wishes is to leave instructions as to how you want things. We can assist you by planning your estate with a will and/or a trust. During our initial meeting, we will determine options from which you can choose that make sense for your personal situation. Plan ahead and provide instructions for your loved ones by contacting THE GOLDEN RULE LAW GROUP ®, Decker & Woods, P.C.
