Why Creating a Will is Important
Creating a will involves important and vital preparations. Over one-half of Americans do not have a will. The primary reason for this shocking statistic is that people dread thinking about death. However, tomorrow is not guaranteed for anyone. An individual who has not prepared a will leaves their family in quite a bind upon their departure. The lack of a will or estate planning creates highly complex and expensive problems for a decedent’s loved ones.
It is prudent to orchestrate a comprehensive plan for your assets for a variety of reasons. A will ensures your intentions are carried out and communicated to your family members after your passing. Your family should be granted the freedom to cope with their loss without having to worry about whether your assets will be divided in a fair manner.
