Guidance on how to be fair
It can be quite difficult to decide how to distribute your assets. Especially in larger families, that feeling of determining what is fair can feel like a burden. An elder law attorney is a neutral party with whom you can discuss your thoughts and apprehensions. It is our priority to assist you in creating a will that reflects your concern for your family members.
Make modifications to an existing will
It is not uncommon for things to change in life and many of these changes should be reflected in your will. It is important to ensure that the changes are accurate and that the will is still valid after any modifications.
Act as executor
An elder law attorney in Sacramento CA may act as executor of your will should you need one. In creating the will with your California attorney, they will be familiar with the document and the beneficiaries. In having one of our attorneys also act as executor, there is an inherent sense of comfort that things will be handled exactly as you intend.
Defend your wishes should there be a challenge to the will
Unfortunately, there are some instances where a family member or creditor will feel a right to contest the will. An elder law attorney is experienced in all aspects of will proceedings and probate court. Our attorneys will know how to avoid the possibility of anyone trying to contest the will. If someone should challenge the will despite our best efforts, our team will know how to proceed in as quick and proficient a manner as possible.
