Get Help Drafting your Living Will and Last Testament
A will is essential in every stage of life. Your living will sets parameters for medical intervention, should you become incapacitated. Your power of attorney assures that your wishes will be honored when you are most vulnerable. Your last will provides you with the opportunity to:
Distribute your property
Establish care for your children
Express your wishes upon your death
A will is also necessary if you intend to leave property to a person or entity other than a blood relative. These recipients may include a domestic partner, a friend, or charity. If you pass away without a will, the court will determine how your property is distributed, who cares for your children, and even what happens to your pets. These decisions may not reflect your desires.
Look to Horton and Associates for professional drafting of valid wills that completely ensure your intentions are honored.

As our lives change, so might our estate plans. If you need to update your will throughout your life, Horton and Associates is
here for you. Look to us to draft valid codicils that address changes in your financial situation, marital status, number of children, philanthropic interests, and general lifestyle decisions.
Make Appointments of Guardianship
Your will allows you to make decisions concerning the future care of your minor children, should you pass away. This is especially crucial for single parents or unfortunate events in which both parents die in a common accident.
If you do not name a guardian for your minor children, the court will appoint one and can make decisions that may not align with your ultimate parenting goals. Within your will, you can also make arrangements for your pets, including naming a guardian.
