Justin J. Sasser | Wills Law in Maryland
Maryland Will Lawyer
A will serves various purposes. It names a trusted person to handle the transfer of the estate and directs the transfer. Narrative text can express feelings and final communications. Another important role is to appoint a guardian, should children or vulnerable adults be left behind. Finally, you can clarify the status of a former spouse or step-children to avoid confusion or disputes. Even if you have a trust, you still need a will.
Each state has legal requirements for a will to be valid. If a will is found by the court to be invalid, then your estate will be considered “intestate.” This means that your property and funds will be distributed according to Maryland statutory law. Many do not know what this entails, and it almost certainly would not be your preference.
I can assure you that your last will and testament is valid, and guide you in avoiding excessive taxation, selecting a suitable personal representative and complying with statutory requirements. Contact me today.
If you have assets in excess of $100,000 or a minor child, at a minimum, you need a properly prepared will.
