A will should be drawn up by anyone who is concerned with who should receive their property after they pass on.
A will eliminates long, difficult and potentially expensive legal difficulties resulting from having to hire an attorney to assist survivors with the decisions concerning your remaining property (both physical and monetary).
A will is imperative where children or dependents are involved that may not be able to care for themselves. Who will look after them? Who will provide for them after you are gone? This concern can be eliminated by having a will that names a guardian you have chosen for your children.
If you are married and have children from a prior relationship or stepchildren, and you want your surviving spouse to inherit your entire estate, you must have a will.
A will is also very important if you are not married to your significant other. The law does not acknowledge unmarried individuals in the same light nor having the same rights as a legal marriage between partners. In the event a will has not been created, even if you and your significant other have resided together for a very long time, your significant other may be left with absolutely nothing.
