Fairfield County Will Attorney
Ready to Handle Your Will? Call (203) 651-5521
The purpose of creating a will is to pass your assets to your heirs. If
you fail to create a will, your assets will pass to your heirs based upon
state law. The state law then determines how your assets should be distributed,
which is not necessarily what you would intend. Therefore, it is advised
that you get a will drafted to avoid your heirs having serious problems.
Properly drafted wills help to ensure that your estate is distributed the
way you want it to be. Of course, wills have to be done with certain procedures
in mind and there are some limits on what you can do. For example, you
may have to give your spouse his or her share as the law requires. As
you prepare your will, your
attorney can advise on ways to shelter your assets as you pass them on to the next
generation. It is best therefore to have your will drafted professionally
by a Fairfield County estate planning attorney.

Considerations When Drafting A Will
When you write your will there are certain matters to consider. Here are a few:
Be Specific: Do not leave room for the heirs to argue about what you wanted. The drafting
of a will should be assisted by a skilled lawyer to ensure that the language
is clear about your wishes.
Be Careful with "Form" Wills: There are many will preparation services out there today. Understand
before utilizing one that the general rules apply to nobody in particular.
Your situation IS unique. Make sure you have an experienced attorney review
your legal documents.
Beneficiaries with Special Needs: If you have a son or daughter with special or particular needs, consider
channeling their portion into a trust you have set up for their benefit.
The trustee can dole out their share so they have money for an extended time.
Tax Sheltering: If you have extensive assets in your estate, your estate will be hit
with heavy estate taxes when you die. You can avoid this with tax sheltering
such as buying a life insurance policy which is paid out income tax-free
to your heirs at your death.
