When a person needs a will in New Jersey it’s usually at the point that they have an ownership interest in property, they have a number of assets that need to be protected, and usually when they have children. The reason why it’s important to have a will when you get to these points in your life is to be able to direct the administration of your state in the event of your death. At those times not only would you be able to distribute the wealth that you have, at the time of your death, but you’d also be able to insure that if you have any children at that time, that they’re protected after your death. Very often in the instruments that we draft, we set up trusts for the children of the decedent so that those children would be cared for in our wills. The trusts are set up usually to protect the child, and the trust usually extinguish at the time the child gains the age of maturity. Here at the Keefe law firm we stand for you.
