The making of a will to determine how your assets should be distributed and who to be distributed to after you have passed away is a matter that everyone should consider. The importance of being prepared cannot be underestimated, for it can mean the difference between a family dispute being settled amicably or descending into a long, drawn-out court case. Thus, it is imperative that a knowledgeable and professional family lawyer well versed in will writing and estate planning assist you throughout the whole process.
Wills and Estates is a crucial legal tool that helps protect your family from potential litigation and probate disputes. The estate planning attorney should possess the appropriate expertise, tailoring the wording of the will when writing it to achieve your desired objectives. Having a lawyer with the requisite skills will ensure that the will is expertly written and the terms are honored as per your wishes. The quality of a will determines its enforceability and whether it protects against all potential conflicts of interest, challenges, and allegations of undue influence during the probate process.
At Family Lawyers, our probate lawyers will guide you through the process of writing a will and can clarify any questions you might have with regards to the legal language required of these documents. To ensure that all potential issues are identified and addressed in your wills and trusts, Family Lawyers’ attorneys will undertake our comprehensive due diligence when crafting your testament. We will first focus on understanding you, your family situation, and your goals before we begin the process of estate planning.
Our law firm’s Will and Estates services includes all matters related to the testamentary instrument, such as:
Our lawyers will help you draft a will that accurately reflects your wishes and provides for all members of your family, including any special requirements. We can also review existing wills to ensure that they remain valid so that no surprises occur, and everyone in the family is protected with the current provisions.
Our family lawyers will also be able to help you set up a revocable trust, which is a legal document that holds your assets and property in the name of a separate entity. This will allow you to determine who gets what share of the estate without having to go through probate court. We will also explain the tax implications of having such a trust and help you manage it properly.
Should any conflicts arise with regards to your will or trust, our law firm is prepared to represent you in court. Our lawyers have the necessary expertise and experience in representing clients in testament and trust litigation matters. We understand that wills can be a sensitive issue for all involved, so we strive to resolve any issues amicably while still protecting your interests.
Our law firm will also assist you in drafting any health care directives or powers of attorney. This will provide instructions to medical professionals with regards to your care, as well as designate someone to act on your behalf if you are unable to make decisions for yourself.
Foreigners here in Vietnam cannot establish and hold a Vietnamese will or testament (unless they are citizens or permanent legal residents). However, the Civil Code of Vietnam recognizes any will that is compliant to the laws of the testator’s country of origin, provided it is in compliance in the jurisdiction where the will was made. Family Lawyers are well equipped when these situations arise, providing you with the necessary advice and support.
In case of a wills and estates dispute, we have the necessary experience to deal with legal difficulties swiftly and sensitively, sometimes engaging in mediation instead of litigation (should it be deemed necessary). Whilst we understand the significance of fairness and process, we are also attuned to delicately deal with the distress that is associated with losing a loved one. For that reason, we have long been entrusted by our clients for our competence, intuition, and discretion.
When it comes to estate planning, having your will prepared and completed by an experienced attorney at Family Lawyers is the most effective method to ensure that all legal necessities are accounted for. If certain provisions are not met, there would be significant risk that the enforceability of the document at the probate hearing will be compromised and your will’s legal validity might be challenged at a later date.
Ultimately, Family Lawyers is dedicated to helping families and individuals plan for their future. You can be confident in the knowledge that our team will provide you with the necessary legal advice, insights, and representation to ensure that your will or testament is a legally binding document that accurately reflects your wishes. We are here to assist you in making sure that your estate will be administered smoothly and according to your personal wishes.
