Frequently Asked Questions
In North Carolina, if you do not have a properly executed will, your property and assets will pass by the North Carolina laws of intestacy rather than according to your desires. A properly executed will assures you that your property and assets will pass to the individuals you have designated after your death. Call us today for an appointment so that we can prepare a valid North Carolina will for you and assure you that your property will pass as you want it to upon your death.
You may need a durable power of attorney, or a statutory health care power of attorney, or both. A general power of attorney designation does not automatically give someone the right to make decisions regarding your health care in the event of your incapacity, and a health care power of attorney does not relate to your financial and legal matters. Make an appointment with us today and we will be glad to discuss with you exactly what documents we need to prepare to meet your legal needs.
In North Carolina, your will does not actually get recorded with the court. You will need to make sure that your original will is placed in a very secure location and that the Executor of your will knows where your will is in order to be able to properly probate your will in court.
