Creating a Legally Binding Will

How Can I Create a Legally Binding Will or Estate Plan?

Writing a will is one of the most important steps in preparing your estate. It allows you to choose who will receive your assets after you pass away. This can help minimize your probate expenses.

If you have minor children, a will can also name a guardian to take care of them until they reach adulthood. A will can also specify who will manage the distribution of your estate.

Seek help from a professional

Making a will requires the help of a knowledgeable attorney. Some attorneys have a specialty in creating wills. They can explain the different laws in your state and help you ensure your will is valid.


Before you begin, you should make a list of all your assets. Be sure to include things such as real property, intellectual property, and prized works of art. You should also have information on your debt standing and the beneficiaries of your estate.


Once you have made a will, you should keep it in a fireproof lockbox. You should also let family members know where your documents are.

Reviewing your Will

To avoid confusion, you should review your will yearly. If you have changes in your family or life, you should revise your will. Make sure all copies are signed by witnesses.

Writing a new Will

You can also write a new will if you want to change the name of a person who will manage your estate or name a new executor. When writing a new will, you must follow the same procedure as your first will.
