No one likes to talk about death, but it’s better than having a child or sibling sort out the property. Having a clear plan will make it easier for everyone to mourn. The personal representative will establish legal will to build trust on your behalf and ensure the proper execution of the estate after your death.
Family lawyers and estate lawyers (also known as probate and probate lawyers) can prepare wills separately. The type of lawyer most suitable for preparing a will depends on your situation. Most family lawyers provide services to prepare basic wills, including bequeath property and personal belongings to family members or appoint guardians for minor children. But real estate lawyers specialize in wills in more complex situations. Consider hiring a real estate lawyer if you:
Have a large number of assets, especially those subject to estate tax
Want to build trust, such as allowing your spouse to live in your home until he or she dies, then leave it to your child, or establish long-term care for the beneficiary
Ownership in a business
Expect to be challenged
Want to cancel your spouse’s inheritance
