Last Will & Testament Attorney in CT
Fairfield County Estate Planning Lawyer
Creating a last will and testament that clearly states your wishes for
your estate is a very important step in any individual's
Wills are not just for the very wealthy or those with extensive property. Your
family and loved ones can be saved a great deal of heartache and lengthy
probate actions through the establishment of a durable legal will.
Reasons to draft a last will and testament:
- You decide how your estate is to be handled
- You decide who cares for your underage children
- Avoid probate
- Minimize estate taxes
- Find peace of mind about the future
By working with a Fairfield County estate planning attorney, you can help
ensure that your last will and testament does exactly what you want it
to in regard to the inheritance of your assets, property and even with
business succession planning.
Avoid Probate & Minimize Estate Taxes
Besides preparing for the future and providing for your loved ones'
futures, a well-written will serves two other important purposes. The
first is to avoid probate. When a person passes away and his or her wishes
were not made clear, the deceased's estate is taken before probate
court in order to determine how it is to be distributed. When there is
a will and an executor has been named, the messy probate process can be avoided.
Drafting a comprehensive will can also mimize estate taxes. The more of
your property that you give away to your family and loved ones, the lower
the final value of your estate will be. This will reduce the final amount
of taxes on your estate.

While a last will and testament will help in ensuring your estate is passed
to your loved ones how you wish, there are some legal factors that must
be taken into account. By working with a last will and testament
attorney it may be possible to work these factors into your wishes for how your
estate is to be inherited with minimal impact.
