A will is a signed document that allocates a person’s assets upon their death.  Although a will does not avoid probate, it is still a valuable tool in disposing of assets and helping meet estate goals.  Most clients use the will to allocate their assets and name guardians for their children.  Additionally, many clients use a will as a pour-over instrument to move personal assets into their revocable or irrevocable trusts upon their death or to incorporate another document by reference.  Whatever your needs or goals, BTJD has the expertise to assist you and clearly explain your options.
