South Jordan Wills Attorneys
Helping Families Prepare for the Future
Planning for the day when you pass away or become incapacitated is not a popular or comfortable subject for most people. That is understandable. Yet, without proper planning, your wishes may never be carried out once you are gone.
Estate planning that includes a will is, therefore, essential if you want to ensure that the people or causes that you love will be taken care of according to your wishes and not through the decisions of a probate judge. That is why we recommend that you turn to our South Jordan wills lawyers at Carr | Woodall. We have extensive experience drafting effective wills and advising clients on related topics.

Wills & Living Wills
There are two types of documents that can be used to provide instructions upon your death or incapacity, including:
- A last will and testament, which provides instructions and details as to how you want your estate to be handled upon your death. This document does not go into effect until you pass away when it is filed with the probate court.
- A living will, which goes into effect should you become mentally or physically incapacitated and unable to make decisions for yourself. This document can name someone to act on your behalf and carry out your wishes as to how you want to be medically treated.
The Importance of Retaining an Estate Planning Attorney
Poorly drafted wills can result in significant legal expenses and contention for your loved ones. There are plenty of software programs that provide a one-size-fits-all solution to drafting a will.
However, if you prefer to have the peace of mind knowing that your will is drafted properly, our South Jordan wills lawyers provide simple will services at a flat fee of $500.00 for individuals or $650.00 for married couples. For complex estates, we generally suggest preparing a more comprehensive estate plan. If you previously had a will but have since had a life-changing event (such as a new child, a divorce, marriage, etc.), it is important to revisit the terms of your will.
