NC: Wills and Trusts

Everyone should have a will or trust document that indicates how they would like their property to be distributed upon their death.  Without a properly executed will in North Carolina, your spouse or children take under the intestate succession statute, which may not be in line with your wishes.  In addition, a will or trust can include many other provisions that ensure your wishes are followed and your loved ones are secure.

A Will or Trust may provide all or some of the following provisions and many more depending on your particular desires: 

  • specific burial arrangement
  • bequests of personal property
  • devises of real property
  • charitable donations
  • guardianship appointments
  • testamentary trusts for the benefit of minor children
