Drafting a Will in Oakland County, MI

Learn About the Two Types of Wills

Last Will and Testament
A last will and testament allows you to distribute the property you leave behind when you pass away. If you pass away without first drafting a will your property will be distributed as laid out in Michigan state law. For many, this is a very undesirable alternative. A last will and testament will not go into effect until after the creator's passing.

Living Will
Both a living will and a last will and testament are intended to provide instructions for the executor should you be found in a situation where you cannot communicate or if you are to pass away. A living will differs from a last will in testament in a number of ways, including when it takes effect. A living will takes effect when you are still alive. If you are ever in an incapacitated state and unable to communicate, having a living will can help your family to avoid conflicts and contention, or even litigation regarding your care and treatment. It is vital that you outline your wishes should you be unable to communicate, lose cognitive abilities or other serious situation.

Protecting Your Loved Ones

Wills are an extremely important part of estate planning and help the individual to ensure that his or her wishes will be carried out at their death. Having a highly skilled Oakland County probate attorney at your side to help you avoid any errors in drafting your will can prove to be invaluable for those you love. Even the most minor omission in a will can cause your family a lengthy legal process or a successful challenge from another party who claims an interest in the estate. There are several types of wills that can be utilized and choosing the right one for you is an important part of planning for your family's future.

In both a living will and a last will and testament, an individual must be nominated to make decisions on your behalf should you pass away or become incapacitated. Our firm has been helping individuals with all aspects relating to wills, estate planning and probate law since 1963.

If you have any questions regarding your living will or last will and testament, please do not hesitate to contact an Oakland County probate attorney from our firm today.
