If you have a family, if you have property of significant value or if you have plans to make charitable bequests upon your death, you need a will. Without a will, your property will go to your heirs under the state law of descent and distribution. With a will, you have the opportunity to decide who receives what, and when. Settling your estate will also be more straightforward, less costly and less subject to disputes if you express your desires through a will. In sum, having a will is less costly for your family overall than leaving your estate with no will in place.
Prepare For The Unexpected — And For The Sure Eventuality (Click For More Information)
No one plans to die prematurely, and most of us believe we have many more years to live. Many people also find it distasteful to think about or discuss death. However, it is the one sure thing that all of us can count on. Unexpected sudden deaths due to traffic accidents, workplace accidents, freak accidents and many other causes are reported in newspapers every day. At any stage of life, an unexpected health crisis can come up suddenly — and often it is too late for the injured or ill person to express his or her preferences for healthcare, for management of financial matters before death or for distribution of assets after death.

Putting off estate planning is, for some people, a plan in itself: a plan to leave trouble and expense behind for family members to deal with, and perhaps question your intentions. The state will be in control of your estate if you die without a will in place. It is far better to take the time to think over priorities and goals, discuss legal matters with an attorney and put one’s affairs in order before crisis strikes.
