All states have specific requirements for your Last Will & Testament. Many states require notarization for a Last Will & Testament to be valid. Many states require witnesses with requirements on whom can be a witness, and the number of witnesses to make the Last Will & Testament legal.

We offer this state specific Last Will & Testament for each state with guidelines for your specific state to ensure that your Last Will & Testament will meet all requirements and be legal.

All states allow the individual to draft their own Last Will & Testament without an attorney.

All states recognize the requirements of the state where the Last Will & Testament was drawn; therefore, you will not have to change your Last Will & Testament because you have changed your state residence. As long as you were a resident to the state and followed all state requirements when you drafted your Last Will & Testament it shall be consider valid any where in the United States.

Estate Planning. To insure who inherits your estate after you pass away you need to have completed your estate planning. If you do not, then you have no say as to who inherits your assets after your death. Complete estate planning includes a power of attorney for finances, healthcare, a living will (healthcare directive) as well as a last will & testament. Many people that have real property choose a revocable trust to prevent probate of an estate. A trust also includes powers of attorney, living wills, burial instructions, HIPAA waiver and much more.

By having powers of attorney done you know that the people you want will be making financial and healthcare decisions for you when you are not able and by having a will or trust done your estate will be distributed to those that you want it to be distributed to.

Probate. After someone dies, their estate (assets) are distributed to their heirs, whether they have a will or not. This court process is called "probate."

Probate may not always be necessary, as it depends on the value of the assets and they type of assets. In some instances, probate may be preferable when there are debts to be paid or if you think, there might be a dispute over the division of the estate by any of the heirs. Removing the deceased person's name from a real property deed (home) most always requires probate unless the property has been transferred into a trust prior to death.
