Yes, a will is an important document everyone one should have in place before they die. A will is a legal document that outlines what yours wishes are when you die. It provides specific instructions on the distribution of your property and instructions for the care of your minor children. If you die without having made a will, then state law will govern how your property will be distributed. This is called dying intestate, eg., without a will.
We recommend that you draft a valid will especially if you are married, have children, or own significant assets. If you are single, without children, and have little in the way of assets, it’s still never too early to start preparation of your will. When you are ready to draft your will, make sure to hire a lawyer. This will help ensure your wishes will be carried out and prevent any disputes by family and/or business associates after your death.
