Why a Will Is Important
If you do not have a will, the courts will dispose of your property via intestacy laws. This means that the people who inherit your property will be determined by nothing more than their degree of relationship to you. When this happens, the court will not even consider your lifetime wishes for the disposition of your property and hard-earned assets. However, if you successfully draft a will, it will prevent the court from deciding anything related to your assets.
A will provides both your family and the court with clear direction as to how to distribute your estate upon your death. A properly executed will may outline:
- What property you own
- Where you want your property to go
- How you want this accomplished
- The people in your life you want to protect
- Who should protect your children
