A will is a legal document stating what you want to happen to your assets when you die. It is part (but not all) of your estate plan.
What if you die without a will? Who gets your assets? Who gets your prized possessions? Who cares for your kids? These are the difficult questions your family will be asking after you’re gone. Without a Will, these questions will remain unanswered, potentially causing stress and drama for years to come.
Having a legally drafted Will is the best approach to make sure your assets are distributed in the way you want. And chatting with an expert is the right place to start.
