What Does a Will Do?

A will is essential at every stage of your life. Your advance directive (or living will) sets the parameters for medical intervention should you become incapacitated. This assures that when you are most vulnerable, your wishes will be honored.

Common items in a will are:

  • Guardianship appointments
  • How you would like to divide your assets
  • Real property transfers
  • Instructions for care of a beloved family pet
  • Any other instructions you believe are relevant

Your last will provides the opportunity to distribute your property, establish care for your children and otherwise express your wishes upon your death.

A will is necessary if you intend to leave property to a person or entity other than a blood relative, such as:

  • A domestic partner
  • A friend
  • Or a charity

If you die without a will, the court determines how your property is distributed, who cares for your children and even what happens to your pet – making decisions that might not reflect your desires. Our estate planning attorney in Dakota County can draft valid wills that ensure your intentions are honored.

Once a will is completed, you can modify it at any time to reflect your current situation. In fact, You should update your will periodically throughout your life. Our lawyer drafts valid codicils that address changes in your financial situation, marital status, number of children, philanthropic interests and general lifestyle decisions.
