Wills available for members of Hyatt Legal Plan

The Law Office of Kenneth Vercammen was selected to serve as a New Jersey Access Attorney for Hyatt Legal Plan and several other major national legal service plans. We prepare Wills, Powers of Attorney and Living Wills.

Why a Will is essential to persons with children or who own property

If you leave no Will or your Will is declared invalid because it was improperly prepared or is not admissible to probate:

* State law determines who gets assets, not you

* Additional expenses will be incurred and extra work will be required to qualify an administrator-Surety Bond, additional costs and legal fees

* Judge determines who gets custody of your children

* Possible additional State inheritance taxes and Federal estate taxes

* If you have no spouse or close relatives the State may take your property

* The procedure to distribute assets becomes more complicated

* It may also cause fights and lawsuits within your family

When loved ones are grieving and dealing with death, they shouldnt be overwhelmed with financial concerns.

Who dont you want to receive your assets?

Who is not the best choice to raise your children, or safeguard your childrens money for college? Do you want children, or grandchildren, to get money when they turn 18? Will they invest money wisely, or go to Seaside and play games?

What Hyatt members can do to get started

Members can also obtain authorization numbers online at https://members.legalplans.com/Home/

After obtaining an authorization number, call Kenneth Vercammens Law Office for a free confidential consultation and preparation of Wills and estate planning documents- all free to Hyatt members

A Will must not only be prepared within the legal requirements of the New Jersey Statutes but should also be prepared so it leaves no questions regarding your intentions.

WHY PERIODIC REVIEW IS ESSENTIAL

Even if you have an existing Will, there are many events that occur which may necessitate changes in your Will. Some of these are:

* Marriage, death, birth, divorce or separation affecting either you or anyone named in your Will

* Significant changes in the value of your total assets or in any particular assets, which you own

* A change in your domicile

* Death or incapacity of a beneficiary, or death, incapacity or change in residence of a named executor, trustee or guardian of infants, or of one of the witnesses to the execution of the Will

* Annual changes in tax law

* Changes in who you like

If you have a current Will, can you change it the next year?

Yes. A Will may be modified, added to, or entirely changed at any time before your death provided you are mentally and physically competent and desire to change your Will. You should consider revising your Will whenever there are changes in the size of your estate. For example, when your children are young, you may think it best to have a trust for them so they do not come into absolute ownership of property until they are mature. Beware, if you draw lines through items, erase or write over, or add notations to the original Will, it can be destroyed as a legal document. Either a new Will should be legally prepared or a codicil signed to legally change portions of the Will.
