Drafting a Will

Wills are legal documents that provide all valuable information on a person’s wishes for care and property and asset distribution after their passing. In order to be legal and valid in the state of Nevada, a person must be at least 18 years of age, be of sound mind and the will itself must be signed in front of two witnesses who then must sign your will in return. The will itself does not have to be notarized to be considered legal. In the will, you will have an opportunity to name and executor, specify a guardian for yourself, minor or special needs children and list specifically what you would like done with property, real estate and financial assets in the event of your death. A properly drafted will can expedite the probate process or, if you so choose, can have your assets transferred into a trust to avoid the probate process altogether.

Living Trusts

Trusts are similar to wills in that they define your wishes for assets, property, guardianship and health care in the event you are incapacitated or pass away. A trust is a valid and legal relationship between you and an appointed trustee. The trustee holds all property and assets for the benefit of another person, known a beneficiary. You can appoint a family member or relative as the beneficiary or you yourself can be the beneficiary of your own trust. Establishing a trust with an attorney may be the best way for you and your family to avoid probate after your death.
