Question description

LS185-4: Describe the concepts of Federalism, Due Process, and Equal Protection.

GEL-1.2: Demonstrate college-level communication through the composition of original materials in Standard English.

PC-2.1: Achieve goals through planning and prioritization.

Assignment Introduction:

Due process is a term used to describe how matters move through the court system. The movement of a matter through the court system can be lengthy process, and probate is no exception. One way to speed up the process of asset transfer after death is to have a valid will that describes how assets are to be distributed.

This Assignment has three parts:

  1. Locate and provide a citation(s) to your state statute(s) regarding a last will and testament. You do not need to include the text of the statute in your Assignment.
  2. Locate a form that can help guide you to create a will that is valid in your state. Be sure that it contains all of the requirements for your state. Be sure to cite the source you used for your form on your reference page.
  3. Draft a simple will using the form you found in the first part of this Assignment based on the following hypothetical situation:

You have a spouse named Casey [your last name], a 28-year-old son named Taylor [your last name], a 26-year-old daughter named Madison [your last name], and a 24-year-old daughter named Allison [your last name]. You would like all of your assets to pass to your spouse first. If your spouse predeceases you, then you would like your assets to be divided equally among your children, per stirpes. You own the following assets:

  1. A furnished house
  2. Two vehicles [you choose which make and model]
  3. Approximately $1,000 in a checking account
  4. Approximately $10,000 in a savings account
  5. A wedding ring worth approximately $3,000
  6. A collection of baseball cards worth approximately $1,000

You may be creative with any other information not listed above that may be necessary to draft a valid will in your jurisdiction.

Required Criteria:

In addition to fulfilling the specifics of the Assignment, a successful paper must also meet the following criteria:

  • Length should be 4–8 pages excluding cover page and references page.
  • Double spaced and 12-point font.
  • Viewpoint and purpose should be clearly established and sustained.
