A Last Will and Testament is a legally binding document that outlines an individual’s preferences for the distribution of their possessions and property after their death. At Racine Law, we provide a comprehensive service where we gather instructions from you regarding the appointment of trustee(s), specific distributions preferences, and the identification of your desired trustee(s).
This document holds significant importance at any stage of your life and should be regularly reviewed, especially when you undergo major life changes such as purchasing a house, starting a family, or experiencing a separation or divorce. By consistently reviewing and updating this document, you ensure that your wishes remain current, providing your family with peace of mind in the event of any unforeseen circumstances.
At Racine Law, we book two appointments for creating your Will. At the initial meeting we take instructions from you on how you would like your possessions distributed and who your trustee(s) will be. Secondly we book a signing meeting with you after the Will has been drafted. At this meeting we go through your Will in detail with you and answer any questions you may have before you sign your Will. After the Will is signed we make a copy of the Will which is given to you for your records and the original signed document is kept safely in a fireproof file cabinet at our office.
