A Last Will & Testament in New Jersey
In a last will and testament, you can do the following:
- Identify your property
- Name your heirs and beneficiaries as well as provide instructions as to what they will receive, how, and when they will receive it
- Name an executor to oversee your estate
- Name a guardian for minor children left without a parent
- Name a guardian to manage the property you leave to minor children
Our Monmouth County attorney for wills can also help you determine if any type of trust should be created to accomplish certain specific goals, depending on your circumstances. We can also provide you with solutions for more complicated matters, such as for business succession planning in the event of your passing.
Without a will, your estate will be subject to New Jersey probate law. This means that a probate judge will decide how your estate will be passed on in court proceedings. Without your wishes known, your estate may become subject to probate litigation where disputes arise between family members or others. This adds unnecessary time, expense, and stress to what might otherwise have been executed with a proper and legally-valid will.
