The Legal Services Support Section can prepare and execute wills free of charge for service members, families, and retirees.
A Detailed Will is appropriate when an individual has significant assets or would like more elaborate estate planning provisions. A testamentary trust may be an appropriate estate-planning tool utilized by a Legal Assistance Attorney in limited circumstances. You should speak to a Legal Assistance attorney if you believe that you need a testamentary trust.
You may also obtain an Advanced Medical Directive and Living Will at the Detailed Will appointment if you desire.
An Advanced Medical Directive appoints someone to make health care decisions for you if you become incapacitated.
A Living Will addresses the testator’s wishes with regard to the withholding or withdrawal of live support treatment.
Detailed Wills are by appointment only so that an attorney may draft and execute the document.
