Last Will and Testament

A last will and testament is a document that provides for the disposition of your property at the time of your death. In essence, this document details how much and to whom you want your various assets to be distributed. A will can also provide for the care of family members as well.

At the Law Office of Andrew Oostdyk, we want to understand your concerns and spend time getting to know you before drafting your will. Our firm understands that every client’s needs are different. As
such, we will not discount the importance of your concerns, and will not rush you through the process.
We will take the time to know your story and develop a trusting relationship. Contact us today to
schedule a free consultation about drafting your complex or simple will.

Why a Will Is Important

If you do not have a will, the courts will dispose of your property via intestacy laws. This means
that the people who inherit your property will be determined by nothing more than their degree of
relationship to you. When this happens, the court will not even consider your lifetime wishes for the
disposition of your property and hard-earned assets. However, if you successfully draft a will, it will
prevent the court from deciding anything related to your assets.

A will provides both your family and the court with clear direction as to how to distribute your estate
upon your death. A properly executed will may outline:

What property you own

Where you want your property to go

How you want this accomplished

The people in your life you want to protect

Who should protect your children
