“Write a Will” Workshop
Presented by Attorney Douglas Atz
Sponsored by the Noble County Community Foundation
“Where there’s a Will, Attorney Douglas Atz, explains the way…”
Noble County Community Foundation understands that a will is one of the most important documents you will execute during your lifetime. Attorney Doug Atz has continued to volunteer to work with the foundation to share how tremendously important it is to have a will. In the workshop sessions attendees will discover how unique a will can be for families. A will can have a profound effect on the financial well-being of family members, friends and institutions. Discussions during the workshop explain the ‘how to’ gather the information needed to work with a professional and attendees will receive a booklet called Planning Your Will. Attorney Atz explains some of the legal things since they sometimes become mystifying or confusing and sometimes there is information around that is not correct. Doug enjoys the opportunity to clarify and speak on all these legal matters, while promoting awareness about the need to have a will.
Attendees of the “Write a Will” workshop may at the conclusion schedule the actual preparation of
a will by Doug at minimal or no cost to the participant. The actual document will not be prepared on site however attendees can schedule an appointment for a preparation of a will and, for those attendees who choose to include one or more monetary charitable gifts in their estate through the Noble County Community Foundation, will receive a simple will at no cost. The community foundation knows that a simple will allows for the naming of a personal representative for an estate, allows for uncomplicated, direct distributions of assets to a surviving spouse and/or other family members or beneficiaries and follows all applicable state requirements for witnesses and signatures.
Without a will, the laws of the state determine how property
is distributed; removing from consideration an individual’s priorities, commitments or how the person left behind might feel about the outcome. We hope to inspire many Noble County residents to get prepared and get
this important lifetime document completed.
