Monmouth County wills attorney Christine Matus releases a new article (https://matuslaw.com/wills-attorney/) explaining the importance of having a will in New Jersey. The lawyer mentions that when someone with significant assets passes away, their loved ones are often left to address many legal and financial issues. Having a will can help a person ensure that their wishes are followed in the event that they pass away.

“A will is a legal document that sets out how you want your assets distributed after your death. It will also address who will care for your minor children and who will act as the executor of your estate,” the Monmouth County wills attorney says.

The wills lawyer also explains that it is very important to seek the legal advice of an experienced attorney when dealing with matters related to wills, estates, or trusts. A skilled lawyer may be able to help families plan for the future efficiently.

Attorney Christine Matus discusses that New Jersey’s estate planning laws allow for a will to be written or typed in handwriting. The will must also be signed by at least two witnesses. The will is considered self-proving if it has been signed by two witnesses. In order to execute a will, a person must be over 18 years old. The executor must also be legally competent to undertake this role.

In the article, attorney Matus adds that “New Jersey also offers the opportunity to enter your legal documents in the will registry. This may help make it easier for your family and friends to locate your remains after your death. To file your will in the registry, there is a fee. Important to remember that even if your will does not get registered, it is legal so long as the criteria are met.”

Lastly, the estate planning lawyer emphasizes the importance of having an experienced lawyer in estate planning matters. An experienced attorney can help clients understand their rights and responsibilities, as well as guide them in making the right decisions.
