Ensure peace of mind by ensuring your children are cared for with a will.

Preparing a will is one of the most important steps you can take to protect your loved ones. This critical document provides direction and forges a personal connection at a time when your family is struggling with grief, loss, and uncertainty. When loved ones see your instructions spelled out for them, that provides a sense of peace and lets them know how much you cared for them. 

You gain peace of mind when you prepare a will as well, knowing that you have left provision to care for the ones you love.  

At Inhulsen Law, we know that creating a will often requires you to make difficult decisions and to contemplate unpleasant possibilities. We work to make the process as easy as possible. Our team explains the terms in straightforward language so that you can make informed choices and fully understand the ramifications. 

Understanding Wills

A will is a legal document that directs the distribution of your assets after you pass away, but the document can accomplish much more than that. In your will, you can choose someone to manage your final affairs, designating them as your executor or personal representative. 

If you have minor children, you can nominate someone in your will to serve as guardian of your minor children if you should pass away before they reach the age of majority. Your will can also create a testamentary trust to provide for management of their assets or for other purposes such as the care of a pet. At Inhulsen Law, we emphasize the importance of wills as a foundational aspect of estate planning. Whether you’re looking to establish a simple will or have specific instructions for your estate, we work with you to create a will tailored to achieve your specific goals. 

Why You Need a Will

Without a will, the default provisions of Michigan intestacy laws will determine what happens after your pass away. This includes decisions such as:

  • Who will serve as executor of your estate, paying final bills and ensuring that all probate requirements are properly fulfilled?
  • Who will receive the property in your estate?
  • Who will serve as guardian of your minor children?

The results under the intestacy laws may be very different from what you would have wanted, and the impact can be disastrous for your loved ones. Any expectations or promises will not be regarded by the probate court. Instead, decisions are based on the priorities established under the law.
