Will & Trust Attorney in Delaware, OH

If you have property or children, it is strongly advised to have a will. Your will states to the world what your wishes are in the event of your death. If you die without a will, your property will be distributed according to state statutes and your wishes with regard to your children’s upbringing will never be known.

Along with a will, you may want to consider executing a Living Will and a Durable Power of Attorney for Medical Purposes. These two additional documents can express your desire not to be kept alive by artificial means when at least two doctors agree that you are in an irreversible coma or permanently vegetative.  

Your will can include an arrangement not only designating who will take care of your children in the case of your death, but also when your children will have control of their portion of their assets. Accordingly, many people put a testamentary trust provision in their will and designate a third party to take care of the money for their children and to distribute the money as they see fit until their child reaches an age when they would be better able to handle the responsibility themselves.
