You've Been Meaning to Write a Will - How to Get the Ball Rolling

Thursday, June 13, 2019 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm

East Hill Office Building (EHOB), 140
395 Pine Tree Rd, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

We know that everyone needs a Last Will and Testament (and other documents too).  So, why is it one of the easiest things to add in our "to do list" and then put off for the future?  Explanations vary, but some common reasons include:

  • Legal documents can be intimidating.
  • I don't like lawyers.
  • I need to prepare a lot of information before I meet with my lawyer, and I don't have time.
  • I am embarrassed by my financial situation.
  • I want privacy, and do not want to share my information with anyone.
  • I worry that it is going to be expensive.
  • Why even prepare a Will, if I'll be dead by the time someone needs it?
  • I don't plan on dying, so why would I need a Will?

If you need to focus on your estate planning, please join us for this session.  A local attorney, Emilee Lawson Hatch, is going to discuss how to remove the intimidation factor, review specific steps in order to get move forward, discuss privacy concerns, and even talk about how much it may cost. We often have the best of intentions for getting legal paperwork completed.  The time is now!
