A will is an important legal document which establishes how your assets and property will be divided following your death. If you pass away without having a will in place, your family may have to deal with complex legal proceedings to access your property and accounts, and it prevents you from having the opportunity to appoint guardians for your minor children. To ensure that your loved ones and community receive what they deserve, it is critical to work with an estate planning attorney from Overman and Overman Law.
While you can certainly draft your own will, the best way to safeguard against errors and ensure it meets Georgia state laws is to partner with an experienced attorney. Your attorney can also advise you on what you can and cannot put in will, and lead you through the proper legal procedures to confirm that it is valid. A will also gives you the flexibility to appoint a person you trust to make important decisions regarding your property, after you pass.
The Law Office of Overman and Overman serves the counties of Coweta, Henry, Fayette, Clayton, Spalding, and Fulton with estate planning services. If you need to draft a will, call us today and a member of our legal team would be happy to schedule you a consultation.
