A Last Will & Testament, more commonly referred to as a Will, is the foundation of effective Estate Planning. If you die without a Will, your estate will be subject to the laws of intestacy. This simply means you will not have a say in who inherits from your estate. Instead, your estate will be distributed according to Louisiana law. However, if you die with a valid Will in place, you control who does and does not inherit from your estate.
Wills do not have be long and complex. Often times, a Will needs to only consist of a few pages. If you have an old Will or have never drafted a Will, contact attorney Ethan Arbuckle today and let him ensure you have a say in the distribution of your estate.
