Wills & Trusts

Wills & Trusts in Allen Parish

The Importance of a Will

A will, also called a testament, can provide instructions from the creator of the will, or testator, about how to distribute property. If you pass away without a will, your assets will be distributed according to Louisiana intestate law. Even though Louisiana has forced inheritance, you can provide your surviving spouse with usufruct, or control of property without ownership, of the forced inheritance portion of your estate. A valid will can also select a guardian to care for minor children and an executor to honor last wishes. By listening to your desires for the future, our attorneys can draft a valid will for you that will protect your family.
