A Will allows you to: Name a Guardian to care for your minor children, Appoint an Executor, and Control the division and final distribution of assets titled in your name.
Naming a Guardian
Appointing a Guardian for your children if you are gone can be a difficult, but very important decision. This individual takes parental control of minor children if both parents are deceased; unless a judge decides the Guardian unfit.
Naming an Executor
Your Will appoints an Executor to oversee the distribution of assets after your life. This individual, along with your Probate Attorney, manages the distribution process.
