What Is A Will?

The words "will" and "last will and testament" are often associated with the estate planning process. However, many people do not know exactly what a will does and are left wondering "what is a will?" At the office of Jordan Fields, P.A., in Stuart, Florida, our attorneys take the time to explain wills and other estate planning documents to our clients.

A Will Is...

  • Also called a last will and testament, a will is a legal document in which you detail your wishes for how your estate should be handled after your death. Whether you have numerous assets or a few, having a will can be crucial in preserving your requests for how money and property are transferred to your heirs and beneficiaries.
  • If you do not have a valid will in place at the time of your death, your assets will be distributed according to Florida state law, which may not be in line with how you envisioned your estate to be handled.
  • Preparing a will as part of a comprehensive estate plan is a vital step in protecting yourself and your assets both now and in the future. Your estate plan must reflect your personal needs, and a "one-size-fits-all" approach simply will not work. We offer tailored, cost-effective estate planning services that can often be completed in one day.
