Having a will is not limited to the older generations. Wills serve a range of purposes and are beneficial to people of all ages. With a will, you can appoint a guardian for your children, distribute your assets to the people of your choosing, ensure the right people are beneficiaries of your estate, and more. The most important function of a will is to act as your voice when you can no longer speak for yourself. It serves as a legal expression of your wishes.

A common mistake people make is confusing wills with living wills. A will expresses your wishes regarding asset distribution after you die. A living will, or advanced health care directive, expresses your wishes regarding health care. Living wills go into effect when you cannot make health care decisions. They often serve their purpose in life and death situations and when a patient is in a coma or otherwise incapacitated.

Drafting a will or living will that clearly expresses your hopes for the future requires the skills of a knowledgeable lawyer that is willing to meet your demands. At John A. Runte, Attorney at Law, we sit down with our clients to discuss their wants and draft a will that is tailored to their needs.
