Of all the decisions you make in life, few carry more weight than how you draft and execute your will. A last will and testament specifies how your assets are distributed among your friends and loved ones, ensuring that they have the financial footing to thrive after you’re gone. Wills also allow you to set conditions for your beneficiaries, so that you continue to exert a positive influence on them. Mann & Kemp drafts wills and offers probate services to enforce them. Operating out of Little Rock, we help clients across Central Arkansas take care of their families and put their desires into practice.
Will & Probate Services from Experienced Estate Attorneys
The first step in writing an effective will is to catalog all of the assets you own. Our team can help you organize and document your affairs, guaranteeing that you will not overlook anything that belongs to you. Keeping track of all your assets is essential if you want to leave enough behind to take care of all your friends and family members. It also makes it easier to account for the emotional value of your possessions, so that you know which loved one will prize each item the most.
Once we have cataloged all of your assets, we come up with a plan for each of them in the will. By going through every asset with you, helping you estimate its value, and stating explicitly who will inherit it, we prevent disputes from arising among your heirs once your will goes into effect. We can also use the will to enforce your desires for your family. For example, imagine you own a farm and want that land to stay in the family. When you say who will inherit it, you can specify that if they want to sell the land, they have to offer it to other family members before they look for an outside buyer. Through provisions like these, you can exert a positive influence on your family and friends for the long haul.
Besides drafting your will, Mann & Kemp offers probate services to put that will into practice. Our probate attorneys will prove in court that the will truly represents your desires. Once the court has accepted it, we will administer the will, following your instructions to the letter. Our goal is to put all of your plans and desires into practice while providing support and closure for your loved ones.
