Wills: Wills and Second Marriages
Spouses usually want to make sure the survivor of them is provided with sufficient resources to remain in comfort for the remainder of his/her life. But what happens when, for example, he/she leaves all of their assets to the second spouse for her benefit, and nothing to his/her heirs from a prior marriage?
Wills: Personal Representative Requirements
Being the personal representative of an estate is not a task to take lightly. A Personal Representative is the person responsible for managing the administration of a deceased individual's estate. Although the time and effort involved will vary with the size of the estate, you will have important duties that must be completed.
Wills: Last Will and Testament
If you own assets in your name alone, those assets may pass from you to the people you designate, through a will. Without a will, your assets pass according to the State's rules, also known as intestacy.

Wills: Will Contests
A Will contest usually happens when heirs surprised by what a Will says. When heirs are surprised by the contents of a Will, it is usually because they thought they were going to receive something, and your intent was for them to get very little or nothing. There are several reasons Wills are contested. Contesting a will inevitably draws out the Probate Process and causing stress, more money, and more time over an estate.
