If you should suddenly pass, you do not want your family to be faced with uncertainty regarding your wishes about the distribution of your assets. Should a family face asset distribution without the presence of a will or trust, they are likely to be financially and emotionally burdened at a time when they should instead be able to grieve. Help protect them through an appropriately drafted will or an established trust. Our team at Woodard Law Group offers legal counsel to Bentonville for both simple and complex estates.

Wills and trusts are not mutually exclusive; you can have both, if they are appropriate for different aspects of your estate. A will goes into effect upon your passing, and almost always requires the estate to be subjected to probate court. A living trust, on the other hand, is immediately in effect.
As trusted Bentonville estate planning lawyers, our goal is to minimize unnecessary burdens on your loved ones. They shouldn't have to argue or negotiate property distribution in the event of your passing. It helps for your loved ones to know who to turn to if you should become disabled. These concerns and more can be addressed through the drafting of a will or through establishing a living trust.
Our legal team can help you decide which option is the right fit for your estate.
