Why Make a Will
Making a Will is very important. However it is unfortunately forgotten or just delayed. When you die without a Will you are dying "intestate" where the government and the law will determine what happens to your estate and children, instead of you. This is not always what you would think or expect.
Not having a Will can cause increased stress, confusion, arguments, and extortionate legal fees for your loved ones, which you can avoid. Choose an executor who will follow your wishes and protect your children’s legacy.
Even when you do not have many assets to speak of, this will save your loved ones a lot of time, money and hassle. When you have property, bank accounts and/or any type of investments, then having a last will and testament is extremely advisable. This last will and testament allows you to control your estate when you die.
Your estate is the total assets you have accumulated over the course of your life. This is the total sum of possessions, property and money at the time of your death less any outstanding debts.
