Drafting a legally-sound will is of the utmost importance if you have children, own a good deal of property or are responsible for caring for a loved one with a disability. No matter your age, or whether or not you are married or have children, you may benefit from drafting a will. A will can help you protect your assets and make sure that your wishes are carried out in the event of an accident or illness. Planning for your future now while you are still in good health can help you avoid future problems should you suffer an unexpected disability.

The Importance of Drafting a Last Will & Testament
A Last Will and Testament, commonly referred to as a will, is a legal document that describes one’s final wishes as they relate to his or her assets and dependents. A will designates a person as an executor or administrator of the estate, and that person is then responsible for making sure the items specified in the will are settled accordingly. If a person passes on without a will, the state will decide how to distribute assets. This is not an ideal situation for many dependents. As such, it is important to draft a will that will set forth your exact wishes regarding your property, assets and dependents.
With a Last Will and Testament, you can:
- Establish guardianship for minor children
- Provide specific instructions regarding the division of assets and property
- Establish guardianship and care for special needs or dependents with disabilities
What is the difference between a will and estate planning?
A Will is a document that is used to transfer ownership of your property to your heirs, appoint an Executor (the person who will have responsibility and oversight for your property when you die), and names the people who will inherit from you.
A Will is also just one component of an estate plan. I argue the Will, in certain circumstances, may be the least important legal document in an estate plan.
An estate plan examines the assets of a person or family, the relationships between family members, estate taxes, income taxes, property ownership, bank accounts, retirement accounts, life insurance policies, and personal property. An estate plan may use different tools to transfer ownership to beneficiaries of your estate such as beneficiary designations, revocable and irrevocable trust, minor’s trusts, and perhaps, payable on death beneficiaries.
Our Hartford will lawyers can help you throughout every stage of the estate planning process. We understand that things change and you may wish to make amendments or adjustments to your will. We strive to create lasting relationships with every one of our clients, providing ongoing assistance with any questions or concerns you may have. At Disability Planning Partners, we’re here for you at every age and stage of your life.
