Alabama Will Attorney
Our Alabama will attorneys are currently charging a flat rate fee to prepare your last will and testament for you and your family. If you require a Trust or other additional documentation, then that will require additional costs as well. We do provide low flat fees for other estate planning documents such as a living will or power of attorney.
A will is a necessary document if you do not want your estate to pass to individuals according to the intestate laws of the State of Alabama and wish to choose who your estate will go to and who you wish to have taken care of your minor children. Everyone needs a Last Will and Testament, so give our Alabama will attorney a call today.
If you have a substantial amount of property and assets, then you should call a wills and estates lawyer to help you and your family plan your estate. If you do not have a substantial amount of property and only require a simple will, then you may be able to do this yourself, but it is still recommended that you contact a wills attorney to advise you and create your documents for you. Our Alabama Probate lawyer will consult with you and advise you concerning your assets and any considerations concerning your children such as the need for trusts and guardianship considerations.
Typically, individuals making a will leave the majority of their estate to someone called the primary beneficiary and will name an alternative individual (secondary beneficiary) to receive the majority of their estate should the intended primary person pass away prior to the individual making the will. The maker of the last will and testament may also name an executor (primary executor), someone to oversee your will and make sure that your wishes in it are executed properly and a secondary executor in case the primary executor passes away prior to the maker of the will. You can also create such things as trusts if you have minor children as beneficiaries, special needs beneficiaries, or other circumstances where a Trust might help you and your family’s estate.
How Much Does a Will Attorney Cost?
A simple will is when most of your assets pass to one individual and you name an executor (and secondary executor) to execute your wishes. Also, in simple wills individuals can add some additional simple clauses as long as no Trusts or other such documents are involved.
Our Alabama will attorneys are currently charging a flat attorney’s fee to prepare your simple will documents for you and your spouse. For this fee, our attorney will speak with you by phone and/or emails and answer any questions you may have and then prepare and send you the last will and testament for you to properly execute and sign. If you wish to speak to our estate planning and Wills attorney about a last will and testament, then you should call the office to set up a quick phone consultation.
Getting the Will Drafting Process Started
To start the process with us, you would call our office and request a questionnaire or a phone or in person consultation with our estate planning attorney. Our wills and estates attorney will discuss your estate options and then, based on the consultation quote you a fee and send you a questionnaire to fill out and send it back to our office for us to type up your estate planning documents.
Once we have received your questionnaire then if needed our attorney can call you to go over the questionnaire, go over your situation and the legal documents that have been prepared, suggest additional documents or changes, and answer any questions you may have about your last will and testament. Once you understand and agree to the contents of your last will, our lawyers will finish preparing your documents and our office will send the will to you for you to execute on your own or in our office. Once the Will is executed, we can keep an original for you in our office or you can keep an original in a safe place that you designate yourself.
