Last Will and Testament
According to Idaho Code Ann. § 15-2-501, anyone who is at least 18 years old and of sound mind may make a will. This “last will and testament” is a legal document that can help protect your family and property. In particular, a valid will can establish:
- who you leave your property after death;
- a personal guardian to care for any minor children;
- a trusted person to manage property you leave to minor children; and
- a personal representative who makes sure that the terms of the will are carried out.
It is important to have a will, because otherwise your property will be distributed by default according to the state’s intestacy laws, which begin with your closest relatives (spouses, children) to more distant relatives (aunts, cousins).
Estate planning is an important family matter that should be handled with a professional by your side. Case Legal Counsel has significant experience in both estate planning and family law, which will be beneficial as the firm can help you draft or evaluate a will, petition for powers of attorney, or clarify the terms of your living will.
