Last Will and Testaments may be a Simple Will, or a Complex Will, depending upon the issues involved with your estate.

A Simple Will gives you the tools for identifying heirs, distributing property, creating trusts, choosing a guardian, trustees and personal or administrative representatives regarding your estate, children, other family members, or entities of your choosing.

A Complex Will addresses the same issues as a simple will, but in a more complex and detailed manner. Complex wills often address various factors such as multiple properties or land ownership, investment portfolios, estate tax planning, administration or creation of one or more trusts, retirement accounts, business interests, life insurance policies, and a number of other issues.

Complex wills are not only for those with large estates, as even the smallest estate may deal with complex issues.
