Things to consider while preparing your will
Once your kids have grown up and started their own separate lives, it is time for you to get free of other responsibilities too. One of the most important things for that is to prepare your will. It might seem an unnecessary step at first as you have a nice health and are expecting a long life. But it is better to not wait for the last days and be done with it at an early stage. It is very big decision and you should be focused while doing it. Here are a few things that you should consider.
You should start by deciding whether you are going to write it yourself or hire a lawyer. If you do it yourself, you will just have to get a will sample from the internet and alter it according to your needs. It will save you a lot of money and will keep things private. Also, it is quite easy to find a useful will sample, so there should not be any problem. Hiring a lawyer is also a nice idea as she will be able to advice you regarding your financials. There must be some hard decisions regarding your will. A lawyer can help you with that.
After making this decision you should determine all your assets that should be mentioned in the will. This includes everything you have complete ownership of.
Finally, you should very carefully select your trustees, to ensure that your property is well taken care of.
