Wills & Powers Of Attorney
Wills are legal documents which describe the deceased's wishes for the allocation of their estate among beneficiaries. The document determines who receives property, cash, assets and any other tangible possessions, and in what quantities.
Testators can choose to allocate their possessions as they see fit, including to family members, friends, trusts and charities. They can also choose who will be guardians of their children, and what arrangements to make for their funeral and burial.Writing a Last Will and Testament is the single most important thing you can do to plan your affairs. Serafini Sakran offers precise Will-drafting to ensure that your Will is unambiguous and prepared in the proper manner and in accordance with your wishes.
