Boynton Beach Florida Wills / Trusts / Estates Lawyer

A will is a documentary instrument by which a person regulates the rights of others over the testator's property or family after their death.

A will is not the same as a living trust!

Advantages to a will Disadvantages to a will
Easy to set up
Wills become public record upon probate. The process invites disgruntled heirs to contest your will and can expose your family to unscrupulous solicitors.
There is no need to transfer any property into another entity for the will to be valid
Probate lawyers, not your appointed executor, often control the actual distribution of your property. This can be costly and unpleasant.
You may name a guardian for minor children in a will
A will doesn’t provide for transfer of property should you become incapacitated
