What is a Will?

A will is a legal document that designates what will happen to an individual's property after he or she dies. A will can also be used for:

  • Naming guardians for minor children
  • Naming an executor
  • Transferring assets
  • Making post-mortem charitable donations

Why do I Need a Will?

A common misconception is that wills are only useful for people with significant assets. This is simply not true. A will can be a valuable estate-planning tool for almost anyone, including:

  • Parents
  • Property owners
  • Individuals with bank accounts, vehicles, life insurance policies, investments, and other assets

Many people avoid getting a will because it forces them to think about an uncomfortable subject: death. However, many families find out the hard way that dying without a will (legally known as "dying intestate") causes a number of difficulties. When this occurs, the courts decide how property is distributed and who the beneficiaries are, which may be directly against what you wished.

If you are looking to draft a will for the first time, or modify an existing will to reflect your current circumstances, please contact us to find out how we can help.
