I need a will

Is a Simple Will right for you?

It may be; particularly for estates of less than $100K and with adult off-spring beneficiaries with no Special Needs. However, Simple Wills do usually require court supervision. Among the key reasons for this is oversight of property transfer to beneficiaries.

This leads to court costs, plus legal and executor’s fees, estimated at over 4% of the value of the estate. It also takes an average of between 9-24 months before the heirs inherit the estate. Court proceedings are in control of the outcome and are also a matter of public record.
