Successions and Wills
Understanding succession and wills
We understand that planning for the future and ensuring the smooth transition of assets and responsibilities is a crucial aspect of life. This is why we are here to guide you through the intricate processes of successions and wills.
WHAT IS A SUCCESSION?
A succession, also known as probate in some states, is the legal process that occurs after someone passes away. During this process, the deceased person's assets, debts, and estate are sorted out and transferred to their beneficiaries or heirs. Successions can be complex and time-consuming, often involving various legal steps, paperwork, and court appearances.
WHAT IS A WILL?
A will, also known as a last will and testament, is a legal document that outlines how a person's assets and property should be distributed upon their death. It also allows the individual to appoint an executor who will oversee the distribution of assets and ensure that their wishes are carried out. Wills are essential for ensuring your assets go to the right people and can help minimize disputes among family members.
