A last will and testament is a legal document that declares how an estate or property will be managed after the death of its owner. Although it is a difficult thing to talk about and plan out, it is paramount that a formal document be prepared to make sure that the owner’s wishes are honored after their death.

There is no legal requirement that a will be drawn up by a lawyer, but there are countless unforeseen dangers that can, and most likely WILL, go wrong with a homemade document. The person who makes a will can’t settle gray areas, correct technical deficiencies, or change their mind when it’s time to execute the will – there is absolutely no room for mistakes.

Drafting an Indiana Will

Different states can have different laws governing how a will is drafted and interpreted. The Schwarz Law Office understands what is expected of a will drafted in Indiana and our clients can rest assured that their estate will be executed according to their wishes.

Keep in mind that a will is an evolving document. It should be revisited every 5 years to make sure that it is kept up to date. The birth of a grandchild, the purchase of a house, or any other major life change is important to factor into a last will and testament.
