Steps to Draft a Will in the State of California

We are well-versed in the creation of wills for our clients throughout Southern California. By creating a will, we can help ensure your loved ones receive the assets, care, and direction they need after you pass away. A will is a written document that allows you to designate beneficiaries of your estate and an executor to manage and distribute the estate upon your death.

In your will, you can designate individual(s) to serve as the following:

  • Beneficiaries: These are loved ones who will receive your assets following your will's instructions; they may be relatives, close friends, spouses, or even a charitable organization.
  • Guardian: If you have minor children, you can nominate an individual to serve as their guardian until they turn 18 years of age. This person can also be responsible for managing their assets.
  • Executor: This is the individual who will be responsible for managing and distributing your estate upon death-this includes paying outstanding debts, handling taxes, and more.

Our firm prepares simple wills, as well as pour-over wills, which are designed to work in unison with a living trust.
