There are a number of legal documents which we take for granted. Any financial advisor will tell you that having a will is extremely important. It sees to it that your estate goes directly to the people intended, with very few delays. This is all perfectly fine but for an immigrant employee this can be a problem. Such people come from different cultures and different legal environments. They don’t understand American law need a group legal plan to draft a will.
The final distribution of the estate many times has to reflect the norms and values of the culture. The Koran, for example, has very specific instructions as to where the final property has to go. This makes the drafting of the will a little bit more complex and ordinary. While a will is not a difficult document, additional time spent creating a specific will can cost money in legal fees. The expense can persuade a person to forego having a very necessary document prepared.
The process of writing a will can be intimidating. A person who is new to America understands that the financial security of his or her family will depend on that statement of last instructions. However, being unfamiliar with American law will cause this person to hesitate. That can be dangerous and have serious consequences in the future. Employers who are concerned about the welfare of employees understand the importance of a will. A group legal plan which permits the drafting of the will is consequently a critical benefit. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services offers the writing of the will as one of the group legal plan options for an organization to consider. This service relieves a lot of anxiety, and our attorneys are among the best in the profession.
