willsEvery adult should have a carefully planned Will.  A Will forms the basis of a person’s estate plan, regardless of the value of their assets.  A Will is necessary even if other estate plan arrangements, such as a living trust or jointly-titled property, are in place.

A valid Will is a legally binding document that can help guarantee your objectives at the time of your death – your legacy – will be honored.  A Will is written and executed in accordance with the laws of each particular state.  The attorney you hire to help prepare your Will should be licensed in the state in which you reside.

Your Will is one of the most important documents you will ever execute.  With a Will you can:

  • Contribute to the financial security of your heirs or beneficiaries.
  • Maximize the assets your beneficiaries will receive.
  • Memorialize yourself and your loved ones.
  • Distribute assets while minimizing taxes.
  • Help the charities closest to your heart.
  • Minimize complications for the executor of your estate.

When you support the Oblates in your Will, you are:

  • Nourishing hungry children in Haiti.
  • Educating seminarians In the United States and Zambia.
  • Supporting the United States Oblates through their retirement years.
  • Providing housing for the poor in Mexico.
  • Bringing hope to God’s most abandoned people throughout the world.
