Bowie Wills, Estates, & Probate Attorney Guiding Clients in Administering Estates
Fulfilling the estate planning and administration needs of clients in Crofton and throughout Maryland
A will outlining how you want your wealth to be distributed among your heirs is an important and valuable gift to leave your loved ones. If you pass away intestate, meaning that you did not leave behind a will, trust, or any kind of estate plan, you will unintentionally create stress and chaos for those you leave behind. In this scenario, your possessions will be subject to Maryland laws of intestate succession, and you will not be able to control how your loved ones are taken care of after you are gone.
At Carey Law Office, we help our clients create estate plans. A thorough estate plan will give you peace of mind knowing that your loved ones will be taken care of if you pass away unexpectedly, and that you will be provided for if you live longer than you may have financially planned. We encourage you to schedule a consultation to discuss your goals today.
What do I do when my loved one passes away?
When someone dies, the estate (all of his/her property, money, and belongings) needs to be handled. In addition, bills need to be paid, accounts closed, property sold or distributed, and more. Estates follow very specific procedures and they can become complicated very quickly. To ensure that everything is handled smoothly and accurately, it is important that you work with an experienced Bowie estate planning attorney from Carey Law Office.
When should I start thinking about making a will?
Right now. Creating a will gives you control over everything you leave behind. If you die without one, the State will decide how to distribute everything you owned. This may not be what you want; your wishes—whatever they were while you were alive—will no longer matter. Unfortunately, accidents can happen at any time and you don’t want to leave your family unprepared (especially if you have children under the age of 18). Making a will ensures that your family will be cared for after you’re gone and saves them from arguing over inheritance.
