Writing a Will in Ventura, California
Creating a will is an important step in ensuring that your loved ones are taken care of after you are gone. Any person over the age of eighteen can create a will. It allows you to specify how your assets will be distributed and who will be responsible for carrying out your wishes.
Without a will, your assets may be distributed in the manner directed by California's intestacy laws, which may not align with your own wishes.
Our experienced Ventura Wills Lawyers provide skilled legal guidance to help you make informed decisions on a wide range of matters, including the following:
Distributing Assets: You may detail the manner of distribution of your assets. Your property and financial legacy may be divided among the individuals or organizations of your choosing. You will designate your beneficiaries. Most often, beneficiaries will be a spouse, children, family members, domestic partner, friends, your church or other charitable organizations. You will also determine the amount or specific directions for each asset’s handling.
Identifying a Guardian for Minors: If you have minor children, your will can identify the person who will be responsible for your children’s care if the death of both parents occur while the children are under 18. This guardian may also be appointed to manage the child’s assets.
Appointing an Executor: The will identifies the person or institution to manage your assets after your death. An executor is responsible for the payment of taxes and other debts attached to your estate. Our skilled Wills Attorneys can help you carefully choose the executor, a position that involves many responsibilities.
While a will can identify the way your assets are handled after your death, it is limited in that it will not protect your beneficiaries and assets from the potentially costly and lengthy probate process. Our skilled estate planning attorneys can offer ways to help meet your goals to minimize tax liabilities and maximize the protection of your assets.
