What Does It Cost to Create a Will?

Chances are you have questions about how your estate will be distributed among your heirs according to your wishes and how you can ensure the transfer of property will go as smoothly as possible. These questions are best answered by making a precise plan for when the day does come explaining to your family member, or any person of your choosing, exactly how you want all of your belongings and assets to be given.

There is often the fear of high costs associated with making this plan. At Lackey & Lackey, PLLC, however, our attorneys are dedicated to making this process as seamless and affordable as possible. Over time, we’ve noticed that clients often come to us with the same questions. We address these below and invite you to reach out to us for help if you need any additional questions answered.

Do I Really Need a Will?

This is a very fact-dependent question and has everything to do with who you wish to be the heirs of your estate, if are you married, if you have any children, and if you desire for anyone other than your children or spouse to inherit from your estate.

In our experience, however, the answer to that question is generally an absolute yes. Too often, after a loved one passes, families are torn apart because of the discord that arises during probate proceedings. Family members, friends, and even caregivers feel left out or that they weren’t loved by the deceased. Having a will is the best way to help your loved ones understand that these were indeed your last wishes.
