Importance of Having a Will in Naples & Fort Myers

While planning for the transfer of your assets after you pass away may seem depressing, it is imperative you make your wishes known via a will as soon as possible.

Wills are beneficial because they:

  • Allow you to appoint a guardian/guardians for your children
  • Can help you protect your business
  • Can transfer assets to loved ones, charities, etc.

If you do not create a will prior to your passing, your assets may be transferred according to state law. A will also allows you to appoint a guardian for your minor in incapacitated child/children. If you pass away without appointing a guardian, the state will be forced to select an adult to care for your children. If you own your own business, a will can ensure your company passes to an heir or co-owner you trust. 

To create a will, call (239) 303-4040 to speak with one of our Naples estate planning lawyers at the Law Office of Conrad Willkomm, P.A.
