- A full estate plan can encompass many different documents to provide all of your directives. These include a Health Care Power of Attorney, Durable Power of Attorney and Living Will . However, the most important document in an Estate Plan is the Last Will and Testament. NC forms for all of these documents are available from Irvine Law Firm Online Services.
- Your Will does not “speak” until you pass away, so you should update it as your needs change. In you Last Will and Testament, you designate who will serve as your Executor to handle your estate administration and specify who will receive what property and under what conditions.
- A Simple Will is one where you leave certain specific property to certain specific people, or all of your property to be divided between certain people. You also designate who will serve as Executor of your estate.
- A Complex Will can include many different options depending on your needs and desires. A complex Will can include a testamentary Trust.
If you need to make a change to your Will, you can either revoke that Will and execute a new one or you can draft a Codicil to the Will. Typical Codicils include minor changes to change a beneficiary or executor without changing other elements of the Will. If you have questions about your existing Will or need to ensure your out of state Will is valid in NC, we are glad to provide that review.

Proper Execution of the Documents is Required
It is crucial that your Will be executed with the appropriate formality. North Carolina requires two witnesses, a notary and the appropriate language on their signatures. All must see you sign and the Notary must also see the Witnesses sign. Irvine Law Firm guarantees that documents we prepare will comply with North Carolina law. We will provide you with detailed instructions to make sure your Will is properly signed and witnessed.
