Create a Will in North Carolina
Making a valid and effective will in North Carolina is more complicated than most people realize. Writing your will allows your assets to be distributed exactly how you desire, but individuals who try to prepare their own will often neglect the most important part: Exactly how and when your assets will be transferred to your beneficiaries, and the costs, taxes and otherwise, involved. Our estate planning lawyers guide you through the benefits of living trusts and the different types of wills that best preserve assets for your heirs. Additionally, North Carolina has specific requirements for a will. Without a valid last will and testament in North Carolina, your family members may be stuck in a lengthy probate process and be liable for costs that could have been avoided.
