What do I need to prepare my Will?

In short, you will need to have a basic plan for what you wish to be included in your will and how you want your assets to be divided. For example, you should decide on an executor and alternate executor to be the person who will serve as your estate manager when you die. You will need to decide on someone to inherit your assets and property. You should also have chosen a guardian to care for your children and have an idea of what you net worth is or if you have any major debts. If any of your dependents have a disability, you should be prepared to include their care procedures as well. Finally, make sure to bring any estate planning documents that you may already have such as trusts, child support orders, wills, powers of attorney, and guardianship decrees.
