Establishing a legally sound will or trust is important to do regardless of age.

If you have questions about your situation, or if you are interested in learning more about the types of wills and trusts that may work for you, do not hesitate to work with a Reading and Pottstown estate planning lawyer from our team.

It is important that you work with an attorney to establish a valid will, otherwise, it will not be recognized in court. In Pennsylvania, a valid will is one that has been drafted in writing and signed by the testator (the person making the will) and at least two witnesses. Any changes to a will can be made with the assistance of an attorney.

Your will can:

  • Outline what you want done with your assets and estate
  • Name beneficiaries
  • Establish guardianship
  • Establish trusts
  • Help you expedite or avoid the probate process

While it is recommended that everyone in Pennsylvania draft a will, not as many people need a trust. The most commonly needed trust is a trust created under a person's last will that can benefit minor children. Most trusts are created to help avoid federal taxation, but your specific needs may vary, which is why it is important you work with an attorney.
