Making a Will in NJ

A will is a document that gives clear instructions for handling your estate after their death. These documents enable you to designate assets for a specific purpose or beneficiary. In some cases, a person may leave a portion of their estate to charity as a donation or specific belongings or investments to loved ones. A will also identifies the executor, the person who oversees the enaction of the will to ensure that your wishes are carried out as provided in the will.

In addition to acting as a roadmap for the future of your estate, a will can make the division of property after death easier for your loved ones. Without a will, your asses will be distributed according to intestacy laws which give your property to your next of kin. While this provides a safety net for families who are left without a will to follow, you may not want your estate to go to specific individuals, or you may want to make special arrangements for particular assets.

Will Requirements

To draft a will in NJ, you must be 18 or older and of sound mind. In other words, you must be able to think clearly and remain alert during the drafting and signing of your last will and testament. You must have a hard copy of the will, and while handwritten copies are acceptable, they are not recommended. It is best to submit a clear, concise, typed copy of the will.

The will must be signed in front of two witnesses who are required to sign the will within a reasonable time after your signing. You may have relatives or friends as witnesses, but it is better to have two objective and disinterested people who will not be beneficiaries of your estate.

You may revoke or change the will at any time by burning, tearing, or destroying the document or ordering someone else to do so. If you want to edit the will, you can draft a new one to replace the old will or pursue modification with the assistance of an attorney.

Face the Future with Confidence

Whether you are entering adulthood or in the twilight of life, there is no perfect time to make a will. Protecting your future does not have to wait, and creating one sooner rather than later gives you the chance to change the will as you grow and change over time.

These documents will be the last request to your loved ones, so it is important to craft them with care. Rozin | Golinder Law has the experience you need to create a will that accurately reflects your intentions after death. We provide clients with honest and upfront counsel so they can proceed with confidence.

Real Reviews From Previous Clients

  • Short, Sweet and Thankful

    “All I have to say is this, Elizabeth is an exceptional Lawyer, and in the field of Law, I can tell you she is a game-changer, I came to her in dire need to help me obtain my Daughter through emergency circumstances, the timing was urgent, and in a matter of hours she was able to accomplish custody of my daughter, she had only 2 hours to prepare for our hearing. That's all she needed, as sharp as she is, surprised it took her that long, Ha. This is a person that reminded me that there is a lot of good in this world. If anyone were to read this, I want to assure you that she will exhaust every opportunity and resource to get the job done accordingly. I would highly, HIGHLY, recommend her to anyone in need of Professional. Job Well Done Elizabeth, Zoë and I are very thankful.”

  • Exceptional Attorney

    “Elizabeth has been representing our family for over a year now in a very sad and complicated custody case that involves the protection of my step daugter. It was a case where the original custody was out of another state. From the day we retained her she's been a godsend. Her motions and arguments reflect the personal interest she takes in every client. She's direct, honest, and very realistic. She's taken us through the temporary emergency custody process...the permanent custody process...and now the child support and contested custody process. She was instrumental in getting the jurisdiction of the child's custody granted to NJ. She has always prepared us for the worst yet we walked out with what we needed to happen each and every time. She's still fighting for this child through this last phase. Elizabeth is a true child advocate it's been apparent since day one. You never know what judges are going to decide but Elizabeth knows the laws, she knows the court room game, she develops a strategy and in my family's eyes she's a top notch attorney. I know one day soon she will climb to the ranks of one of the most powerful family attorneys in this state if she isn't alreay there. She's aggressive, smart, honest and a true talent at what she does.”

  • Successful Relocation

    “Elizabeth Rozin-Golinder successfully represented my wife on a couple of occasions. Once was for child custody and the most recent was for child relocation, which required a plenary hearing. Elizabeth was very easy to communicate with in person, over the phone and through email. She worked very diligently to ensure that each case was aggressively presented and won. I highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone in need of a top notch family attorney.”

  • Very Highly Competent, Excellent, Compassionate, NJ's Top Attorney

    “I retained her after reading online reviews about her and I am so glad I believed it. I read other client comments and I truly agree with them she is an Exceptional attorney who has helped me to get my kids back to NJ, then got my TRO dismissed in a full blown FRO trial and represented me in my divorce case too. My case was extensively litigious and very volatile. The way Elizabeth handled it was TERRIFIC. She is one of the Attorneys who does not want unnecessary litigation unless the opposing party doesn't want to settle and keeps litigating and we had to go through it. She knows the LAW and very often she is able to read the Judge's mind which I have witnessed in the court order.”

  • Amazing Lawyer!!!

    “Elizabeth was amazing from the very beginning of my divorce process. She not only was clear and prompt in all communication, but also connected with me on a personal level where I felt very comfortable going into all details of my divorce and the reasons why I was getting divorced. I whole heartily recommend her and her team. Not only did she help me through the process, but did so within 4 months! I met her in March and was divorced by June! Thank you so much Liz, you are truly an exceptional lawyer!!”
