Get Your Will Drawn Up The Right Way, The First Time

Your will is the centerpiece of your estate plan. Without a comprehensive, legally valid will in place, your plan is unlikely to be honored when the time comes. Whatever your age, parental and marital status or wealth, you owe it to yourself and your family to have a will done right and according to your final wishes.

What Should I Include In My Will?

No two estate plans are the same. With that said, every legally sound estate plan should have a few key documents to address what you want to happen with your estate in the event of your incapacitation or death. These documents commonly include:

  • Last will and testament: You can identify your beneficiaries and designate which assets go to whom.
  • Durable power of attorney: If you lack the capacity to handle health and financial matters, your power of attorney can manage them for you.
  • Health care directive: Directions for your medical team on how to approach your medical care if you can no longer speak for yourself.
  • Guardianship designations: Do you have minor children? You should select someone to be their guardian in case you can no longer care for them.
  • Community property agreement: Washington state is a community property state, so married couples may want to have an agreement stating which of their assets are community property and which are not.

When our estate planning lawyers work with you, we can sit down and discuss in detail how to draft each document so it suits your unique needs and goals. We strive to make the process as simple and stress-free for you as possible. Our firm is LGBTQ+ friendly and feels honored to help same-sex couples with their estate planning needs.
