Do you have a will? Why do Louisiana residents need a will?

Do you have a will? That is, do you have a legal document that conveys your wishes regarding the distribution of your property upon your passing? What about other important considerations like the legal care of your minor children?

But do you really need a will? Do you answer yes to any of the following?

  • Do you care who gets your property if you die?
  • Do you care who gets your money if you die?
  • Do you care who is appointed the guardian of your minor children if you die?

Wills are not just for the rich and wealthy. Regardless of how much or how little money you have, a will ensures your wishes are properly carried out.

Do you own a business? A will helps ensure a smooth legal transition of those assets. A will helps prevent any interruptions to your business.

Do you need a lawyer to write a will in Louisiana?

You might have heard that Louisiana allows the olographic, or handwritten, form of will. This kind may serve in a pinch, but contact a lawyer to avoid falling into common legal pitfalls. This is especially true regarding the taxing of your estate!
