IMPORTANCE OF A WILL
The importance of having a will cannot be understated. A will is
designed to provide direction and control over your finances and
children's future upon death. Without a will, your estate will be
subject to probate - meaning that the government and the courts will
look to determine (or more accurately, re-determine) what is to happen
with your estate from a monetary perspective and your children from a
guardianship perspective. And this will all be done at substantial cost,
as the court's appointees must be paid (and the government receive the
greatest amount of tax from the estate).
A professionally prepared will enables you to avoid probate, determine
how your estate is distributed, select the individuals who will make
decisions in your absence, appoint guardians for your children and
arrangements for your children's well-being, and undertake strategic tax
planning. This is all undertaken with the intention of relieving your
grieving family members from the anguish and conflict associated
attempting to resolve an unsettled estate, and more importantly,
avoiding disputes between family members who feel that they are entitled
to a great share of your estate.
