A Will is a fun­da­men­tal com­po­nent of any estate plan. A Will con­trols the dis­tri­b­u­tion of prop­er­ty after the Testator—the mak­er of the Will—passes away. At Crid­er Law, we can design a Will that can help you accom­plish goals such as:

  • Deter­mine who gets your assets after you pass away, rather than the State of Cal­i­for­nia mak­ing this deci­sion for you
  • Name the per­son or insti­tu­tion that you want to man­age your estate after death
  • Make gifts to char­i­ty
  • Deter­mine who will bear the bur­den of estate and oth­er tax­es

What hap­pens to your assets if you pass away with­out a Will? The State will dis­trib­ute them accord­ing to the Cal­i­for­nia law. In essence, the State will con­trol “who gets what,” not you. The State will also appoint some­one to man­age your estate, and if you have minor chil­dren, name a per­son to care for them. The­se could very well be peo­ple you would nev­er have cho­sen your­self to han­dle impor­tant deci­sions about your loved ones or assets.
