遗嘱

遗嘱是一份为人们去世后对财产作出合理安排的法律文件。通常人们决定将财产分配给配偶、子女、孙子女、教育机构或慈善机构。我们的许多客户持有双重国籍,财产受不同的司法区管辖。我们经验丰富的律师可以提供一个全面的遗嘱起草服务,让您的遗嘱在国外同时具有约束力。

要求

1. 理解行为的实施及后果。立遗嘱者必须明白他是在做什么,明白实施这个行为的后果。也就是说,立遗嘱者必须意识到他是在做遗产分配的计划,是在对身后事宜做出安排。

2. 知道财产的性质和范围。立遗嘱者必须知道,或者应当知道他财产的大致的性质和范围。但是立遗嘱者不需要能够提供他所拥有的每一项财产的精确账目和价值。立遗嘱者所认为的自己财产的多少,和财产实际上的多少之间的差别越大,他就越有可能被认为是缺乏立遗嘱资格。

3. 能认出继承人。立遗嘱者必须知道,或者应当知道通过其死亡通常会得益的人(即假定的继承人,比如配偶、子女、父母、孙子女和兄弟姐妹)。但是,立遗嘱者不是必须要留财产给这些人,他没有这个义务。如果仅仅因为立遗嘱者的遗嘱中的财产分配看起来不公平或者异乎寻常,则并不意味着立遗嘱者就缺乏立遗嘱资格。

4. 同时具备前三个要求直到做出合理的决定。立遗嘱者要同时符合前三个要求,并且要持续一段足够长的时间,直到做出一个合理的决定。

5. 书面形式。一般来说遗嘱应该是书面形式的,即打印出来的、用打字机打出来的,或者是以其它的有形形式存在的。

6. 立遗嘱者的签名。立遗嘱者在遗嘱上签名可以保证他实际上认可了这个遗嘱,也表明了遗嘱已完成,反映了他最终的愿望。立遗嘱者签名时,见证人在场是比较好的做法。立遗嘱者的签名一般都要在遗嘱的末尾进行。

7. 见证人。几乎所有的州都要求至少有两个见证人。有一些州对见证人加以最低年龄限制,比如14岁或者18岁。见证人必须是有能力的和可靠的。见证人并不需要知道立遗嘱者的遗嘱的内容。一般来说,见证人的签名应该在遗嘱的末尾并且在立遗嘱者的签名之下。

好处

1. 立遗嘱之后,便可以高枕无忧。因为在遗嘱中已经把自己对身后之事的想法进行了说明,生者会尊重您的遗嘱,并按照您的遗嘱行事,所以您不必担心实现不了你的愿望。当然如果人和事发生了变化,为保证遗嘱有效性您有必要重新更改遗嘱。

2. 可以减少亲人的痛苦和烦恼,避免不必要的纷争。在您过世后,您的亲人正处于极度悲痛之中,再精明再有头脑的人也可能会变得思路混乱,这个时候又必须要处理您的身后之事,如果亲人意见不一致,还会导致一些纷争,造成家庭内部的不和。可谓烦上加烦,痛上加痛。而您如果有一份有效的遗嘱的话,亲人就可以按照您在遗嘱中表达的意愿行事,减少给他们造成的痛苦和烦恼,并能避免纷争。

3. 可以避免无遗嘱继承。遗嘱可以让您自己决定财产的分配,确保所爱的人或者机构能按照您的意愿得到你的财产,避免了由州法和法院做出这些决定。而且无遗嘱继承法律只承认亲属的继承权,所以您亲密的朋友或者您所钟爱的慈善团体不能得到任何的财产。

4. 通过遗嘱您可以指定一个自己信任的遗嘱执行人、孩子的监护人以及您留给孩子的财产的管理人,而避免了州法院做出这些决定。

5. 遗嘱是一个基本的遗产计划方法,即使您的遗产计划有很多其它的组成部分,但遗嘱可能是不可缺少的。在几乎所有的文件中,遗嘱是您可以用来为你的孩子指定监护人的唯一的法律文件,也是最可靠的方法。此外,某些种类财产的转移,比如现金、车辆、个人财产等,用遗嘱是一个简便的方法,而用其它方法转移可能会很困难很复杂。  

6. 一份有效的遗嘱在其它的州也会有效。

7. 如果没有遗嘱,您过世后可能还会造成财产上沉重的税务负担。
