Do you have a Last Will and Testament? Did you know that without a Last Will and Testament, the State of Ohio basically writes one for you? We suggest you decide on how you want your estate distributed upon your death instead of allowing the state to make that decision for you by executing a Last Will and Testament. Do you have minor children? Who would take care of your children upon your death? Who would you feel confident in naming as a Guardian or Trustee to oversee any assets going to them. At what age do you feel your child or children would be capable of handling estate assets passing to them? Who will handle your estate? What will happen to your home, your financial assets, and your personal possessions after your passing can be a difficult process. We will take the time to help you make these decisions now with a Last Will and Testament. Without one, a court may end up dividing your property for you and allowing persons to handle your estate and serve as Guardian over your children that you may not want.
Every person over the age of eighteen years old should consider executing a Last Will and Testament.
