Last Will and Testaments in Alabama
A will is a necessary document if you do not want your estate to pass to individuals according to the laws of the State of Alabama and wish to choose who your estate will go to and who you wish to have take care of your minor children. Everyone needs a Last Will and Testament, whether you decide to create one for yourself or you seek the advice of our Alabama will lawyers.
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 will lawyers can 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 one person (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.
How Much Does Creating a Will 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. Trusts are usually recommended if you are leaving your assets to minor children. If you are leaving assets to adults, then you usually do not need one and as long as you do not have too much detail in what you are leaving to who we can do it for the simple will fee.
Our Alabama will lawyers are currently charging a $80 flat attorney’s fee to prepare your simple will documents for you and your spouse. For this fee, our attorney can 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 meet with the attorney in one of our offices, for either a consultation or to have the attorney present during the execution of the documents, it would be an additional fee of $150. If you wish to meet in an office, then you should call the office to set up an appointment. If you want us to notarize and witness your signature on the documents, we can do it by video conference or in person. We do charge an additional fee to notarize and witness your documents for you as well. Call us today to find out how much we charge to do this if you do not have somewhere to notarize your documents and have no witnesses as well.
Whether you want an in office consultation or not, if you are interested in having us prepare a simple will for you and your family, then call today to speak with one of our Alabama will attorneys.
Getting the Will Drafting Process Started
Our will lawyers in Alabama are currently charging $80 for simple wills that do not require a trust. If you need more than just a simple will then we can consult with you on what type of estate planning documents you may need. To start the process with us, you would call our office and request a questionnaire or a phone or in person consultation with our attorney if you require more than a simple will. Our Alabama will lawyer will send it to you and you fill it out and send it back to our office for us to type up your Last Will and Testament.
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. If you would like to have this consultation in one of our offices instead of over the phone, then you would need to set up an appointment. Meeting for an in office appointment is an additional fee of $150.
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. 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.
