Work with a lawyer to prepare a simple will. An attorney can help you figure out what to include and make a plan for your estate. Ultimately, your will should contain instructions on what to do with your assets. You should also select beneficiaries, guardians for your children (if you have any) and an executor for the will.

To help ensure you don’t miss any steps, hire an estate planning attorney to prepare your will.
