Lawyers To Help With Writing A Will
I want to write a will outlining everything possible in the event of my death. I do not have any children… yet. Just a wonderful, loving husband who deserve to get everything if he were ever widdowed. God forbid this ever happens, but I just want to be prepared. Life is crazy sometimes.
Does anyone have recommendations for a lawyer that has done this for them before? So far I have just gotten one quote and it was upwards of $1500 just to write a will for only me. I find that pretty steep – but hey – maybe I just don’t know what price these usually run for? I own our home. I had it before my husband. But it’s just as much his as it is mine, in my eyes. I have no debt. My car is paid off. And a fair amount of savings for my age. We are hoping to have kids in the next 1-2 years.
Is it even worth writing it now before having kids? Should we wait until we have kids so we don’t end up paying for it now and then again for it to be changed when kids are in the picture? Another reason I think it’s important to have one is the fact that I am estranged from my father (by choice) – he’s a total loser and was never in my life (my mom passed away when I was young too) and I don’t want him to ever try to get anything of mine. Even though I have changed my last name since getting married 2 years ago. I don’t want him to try and find any loop holes or whatever.
Advise appreciated. Thanks!
