At The Law Office of Tom Somos, we provide you with experienced will and estate planning attorney services to Columbus, Ohio, and surrounding areas.
It is important that you have a will because you yourself get to name the executor and successor executor of your estate, the powers granted to the executor, and the option to waive the need for the executor to post a bond. Without a will, the state would determine these issues.
If you have minor children, a will provides you with the opportunity to name and appoint guardians of children, and successor guardians, should your original guardians be unable or unwilling to act as a guardian. Without a will, litigation over the care of your children could ensue and a temporary guardian, completely unknown to you and your family, maybe appointed by the state.
Benefits of Having a Will:
You should periodically review your will. Since there are technical rules that must be followed, you must obtain the assistance of a qualified attorney.
