What is the significance of having a will?

Arrow icon

A will is fundamental to estate planning. It dictates how your assets will be distributed upon your death, appoints guardians for minor children, and can help prevent disputes among your heirs. Without a will, state laws will determine these matters, possibly in ways that don’t align with your wishes.

Why can’t I just create an estate plan myself?

Arrow icon

While there are DIY options for estate planning, they may not account for the complexities of your situation or adhere to all applicable Montana laws. An experienced estate planning attorney will ensure that your plan is comprehensive and lawful and speaks to your needs, offering strategies and insights beyond what generic templates can provide.

How often should I update my estate plan?

Arrow icon

Regular reviews every three to five years or after major life events (marriage, divorce, birth of a child, significant financial changes, etc.) are crucial. These updates allow you to adapt to legal changes and personal developments and confirm that your estate plan reflects your current wishes and circumstances.
