Is Your Will a “Turkey”? 6 Ways to Tell


Thanksgiving is less than a week away, but many people currently have turkeys of a different kind – poorly drafted Wills.

If your Will is missing one or more of these features, it’s time for an update:
Waiver of bond for the executor
At least one successor executor (in case the first named executor can’t serve)
Trust provisions for minor beneficiaries
Comprehensive powers for the executor and/or incorporation of statutory powers
Contingent beneficiaries (in case the primary beneficiaries are deceased)
Self-proving affidavit (witnessed and notarized)
Having these provisions can save a lot of time, money and aggravation in the administration of your estate. And these are just the simplest, most obvious things. Any number of other provisions may be advisable depending on your situation.
