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.
