A Will is your simple instructions to tell the court who gets the assets you own after you die and who ensures it gets done. Front Range Estate Planning offers inclusive will-based estate plans for a fixed fee, agreed in advance.
- Without a Will, your assets will go to the people the State of Colorado dictates. This may not agree with what you would want.
- If you die without a Will, the state dictates who is in control of your assets and the distribution process.
- Most people do “Sweetheart Wills”; everything to my wife or everything to my husband.
- Many couples decide to get a will as soon as they have a child, to ensure that the child is well provided for and taken care of by people of their choosing.
- A properly drawn Will can have a “stand by” provision for underage or disabled beneficiaries, as many people do not want underage beneficiaries to receive large sums of money on their 18th birthday.
- Naming a beneficiary in your Will who is receiving state or federal benefits to help pay for a disability could instantaneously disqualify them from those state and federal benefits.
Don’t let fear or procrastination stop you from planning. Your desires can be achieved more easily than you may imagine.
