Charlotte Wills Attorneys
Draft an effective will with our estate planning lawyers in Charlotte
Your will, or “last will and testament,” is considered the foundation of your estate plan because it designates how your assets and property will be distributed upon your death. If your estate plan lacks a valid will, probate court may disburse the remainder of your estate in accordance to state laws and not in respect of your personal preferences.
Your will is essential to your estate plan because it:
- Distributes property according to your wishes
- Names an executor to settle your estate
- Designates a guardian for any minor children or dependents with special needs

Drafting a customized will
While it’s possible to download templates off the internet, it’s in your best interest to retain the services of an experienced lawyer who can draft a customized will based on your personal circumstances and legal objectives. Our firm knows just how important this legal document is. When you schedule an appointment with our legal team, we can review your assets and property, listen to your goals and preferences, explain your options, and draft a legal will that specifically meets your needs.
A will is only valid if the following requirements are met:
- It is typed or handwritten
- The testator is 18 years or older
- It is signed by the testator or a legal proxy
- The testator’s signature is present at the end of the document
- There are two witnesses present for the signing
Like the other documents in your estate plan, your will needs to be updated every few years to account for any significant life changes or asset modifications.
