A Last Will and Testament is an Estate Planning legal document that is prepared by the owner of an estate and/or assets, for the purpose of outlining the distribution of property and assets in the event of your passing. In short, it is your wishes for the distribution of your property and assets.
Your Last Will and Testament can be as general or detailed as you wish. A will is not just for the wealthy. Every family can benefit from a well prepared will, and help limit contested issues during probate.
A will can also reduce the stress that a family often goes through when a Last Will and Testament has not been prepared.
Without a will, your estate will be distributed by the State based on legal guidelines for equal distribution.
There is a pecking order for distribution of your property and assets in the absence of a will which generally includes the spouse, then children, brothers and sisters. Without a Last will and Testament, all property and assets could end up going to the spouse, with the children being left out because the spouse legally may be entitled to to entire estate.
A Last Will and Testament may ensure that parties that you would like to pass property or assets to will not be left out.
