Wills and Living Will Lawyers Serving Scott County and the South Metro

Many people have the preconceived notion that a will is only for the middle-aged or elderly with a significant amount of assets. In fact, everyone can benefit from creating a will. Whether you have a significant estate, or you are an average family wanting to provide for your children, a will can express your wishes regarding asset distribution and care of your family after you pass away.

We offer personal attention and service throughout the process to make everything go as smoothly as possible. We hope you walk out of our office feeling comfortable with your plan for the future.

Why Get a Will?

If you are younger or don’t have a lot of assets, you may wonder why having a last will and testament is necessary. Consider these questions: Who will take care of your minor children if you pass away unexpectedly? Do you have a family heirloom that you want to go to a certain beneficiary? Who should inherit your house? Who should take care of your pet in the event of your death? If you are not married, how can you ensure a significant other receives an inheritance?

All these decisions seem commonplace, but they are important to consider; and if you want to have a say in them, rather than placing the burden on your family or having a judge decide, it is necessary to have a will in place.

Living Wills/Health Care Directive

It is just as important to consider having a living will or health care directive. Living wills give clear instructions as to the amount and level of care you receive should you become incapacitated. For example, they can express your wishes regarding resuscitation if you are in a car accident. While most people do not consider having a living will until they are older or if they have a terminal illness, adults of all ages can benefit.
