Do I really need a Will?
Absolutely. Having an estate plan is important no matter what stage of life you are at. A Will is one tool that is used to form a complete estate plan. It gives direction on how your assets are distributed when you pass away. A properly drafted Will ensures that your assets go to the people you choose.
Often, people think of a Will as something just for elderly people. While it’s true that you should have a Will later in life, it is just as important for young adults.
A Will is especially important if you have children who are minors. Your Will establishes a guardianship should you and your spouse be unable to care for your children. This ensures that your children have someone to care for them if you are no longer able.
What happens if I pass away without a Will?
Simply put, your estate is distributed according to the intestacy laws. The intestacy laws dictate who gets your assets, not you. Basically, the judge assigned to your probate case decides how your assets are distributed. In other words, your desires will not be honored.
