Creating a will is a necessary and simple process, involving setting forth your wishes and any instructions regarding the distribution of your assets and the care of your family. Creating a will gives you the power to determine how exactly your assets will be distributed and who will be in charge of settling your estate. Without a will, you risk your loved ones not receiving assets you may wish them to receive following your death.

Proper planning with a will or trust also gives you the ability to dictate how your children or dependents will be cared for, such as who physically cares for them or who manages any money or assets left to the children or dependents.

Wills and trusts are also essential planning tools for anyone with a small business or investments. You can create specific instructions for the transfer of or winding down of your business.

Estate planning may also encompass planning for your beloved family pet, as well. A simple purpose trust may be created setting money aside for the care of your pets and including instructions on the care of your pet as their life goes on, including your wishes for your pet's end of life care. 

Whether you are young or old, it is essential your thoughts and wishes are properly recorded. Call Thorne Law today to discuss the best way for you to plan your estate today!
