Wills, Living Wills, and Powers of Attorney in Fayetteville, NC
Serving Fayetteville, Hope Mills, Spring Lake, Fort Bragg, and all of Cumberland County
The State of North Carolina has already written a “will” for you, should you die without executing your own. It is called “intestate succession,” codified in Chapter 29 of the North Carolina General Statutes. For example, in part, it provides for the distribution of only one-third to one-half of your real property to your spouse, depending on how many children you have, and the distribution of only one-half of your real property to your spouse if you die without children but with a surviving parent. This is unacceptable to most people. This is why it is so important to execute a Last Will and Testament to dispose of your Estate as you see fit, and not the legislators in the General Assembly.
You can do virtually anything you want to do with your assets in your Will. The attorneys at Armstrong & Barrington PLLC are ready to guide you through the process of determining the best way to provide for your loved ones once you have passed away. Having drafted hundreds of Wills over the years, we can help assure you that what you want will happen when the time comes. Our Wills comply with the formalities required by Chapter 31 of the North Carolina General Statutes.
Attorney Adam Barrington and Attorney Bruce Armstrong are also able to draft a Trust for your minor children in the unlikely event of the deaths of both parents. It is never pleasant to think about these matters, but with the right lawyer guiding you through the process, you can have the peace of mind that your children will be provided for if the unthinkable happens.
