What is a will?
It's a document that establishes a "manager", known as an executor, of your estate and instructs them on what is to be done with your property when you die. The will also accounts for guardianship of children.
When should you get one?
The best time to write your will is when you have recently reached a milestone, like getting married, having kids, getting divorced, or if you simply haven't updated your will in a very long time. At any point in your adult life, if you don't have a will, now's a good time to establish one.
Do you need a lawyer?
No, but wills can get complicated quickly. We've seen some copy-and-paste versions that have not best-served the individuals that had them. You should trust a trained professional, like the lawyers here at Chhina Das LLP, to properly craft your will so that your intentions are adequately accounted for.
How much does it cost?
Our rate is *$500 for a full comprehensive will. We have some of the most competitive lawyer-drawn rates in the area.
