Will a deathbed will hold up?

As the name implies, a deathbed will is a legal document drafted when you know that you will not recover from an injury or a disease. The medical professionals tell you that death is imminent and it's just a matter of time.

Writing a will: 5 reasons to do it today

It's easy to put off writing a will. You feel like you have a lot of time to get it done, the legal process can be confusing and you think you'll be better prepared when you're closer to the end of your life. These are just three potential reasons, but people can give you nearly an endless list of reasons they haven't written a will.

What's the bare minimum for a legally valid will in California?

You could shop around online and find a cookie-cutter will template. However, that is a very big risk. Many estate planners have made significant mistakes when creating a "do-it-yourself" will or trust document. There are just too many things that can go wrong, and too many headaches and costly expenses that your family will have to endure if you make a mistake. It's worthwhile to rely on the experience of an estate planning attorney to ensure that you draft a sound and valid will.

Don't forget about Fido in your will

If you're a person who loves having pets, the last thing you'd want to see is your pet being mistreated or left alone after your death. Whether you have horses, dogs, cats, fish or other animals, it's a good idea to include them in your will.

Why you need to create a will (before it's too late)

Many California residents have not completed the most basic element of an estate plan: the last will and testament. If you ask them, they'll say something like, "I'm going to do it soon. I just haven't had the time." Or they'll say, "I'll take care of it before the end of the year." But what if today is your last day? What if you die next week and you leave your family without the most vital piece of estate planning documentation?
