Virginia Wills Lawyer

A will, also known as a Last Will and Testament, is a legal document that spells out your wishes regarding care of your children, as well as the disposition of your property at death. It also:

  • Names your executor
  • Names guardians for your minor children
  • Determines how your debts and taxes will be paid
  • Decides what happens to your pets

Failure to prepare a will typically leaves decisions about your estate to judges or state officials and often causes family strife. A Virginia wills lawyer can help you prepare a document that follows your interests.

Limitations of Wills in Virginia

Wills are somewhat limited, however, as a Will does not control the disposition of:

  • Jointly owned property that passes by survivorship
  • Property that passes by beneficiary designation, such as life insurance or retirement accounts
  • Property held in a separate trust
  • Property that is payable on death to someone else.

Securing the transfer of property to reflect your and your family’s wishes while still of sound mind will help prevent confusion and reduce the emotional & financial stress of your loved ones after you have passed. Properly executing this document with the aid of an experienced estate planning attorney will ensure clarity regarding your wishes and ease the administration of your estate.
