A person's estate will be distributed through North Carolina’s Intestacy laws if a person dies without a Will or Trust. How North Carolina Intestacy laws will distribute an estate may not reflect how the person who passed wanted their estate to be distributed. Therefore, while it may be an uncomfortable and unpleasant topic to discuss, it is critical to draft a Will or Trust if you want to decide who gets what from your estate at your death.


If done correctly, this estate planning can alleviate a lot of unnecessary stress and heartache for your family at your death. A will is a legal document that allows a person to control how and to whom their assets will pass at their death. Drafting a will properly and accurately is imperative to assure that the will is legally enforceable and the assets are distributed according to the terms of the drafter. There are certain legal procedures and wording that need to occur for the will and testament to be legally valid. It will be our goal to match your intentions with our legal knowledge and experience to make sure the estate is distributed to your wishes.
