It is all too easy to put off the process of drafting a will. The decisions that need to be made may be difficult. There may seem to be more time. The reality, however, is that there will not always be more time. Taking steps now to clearly define your wishes for your estate and how you want to provide for your loved ones in the future will be a tremendous comfort to them.
Failing to draft a will leaves your assets under the control of the state laws governing intestate estates. Those state laws may not provide appropriate allocations for your spouse or any children who may have particular needs. Only by taking steps to ensure your wishes are known can you ensure that your loved ones are provided for.
Common goals that can be achieved by drafting a will:
- Providing for loved ones
- Minimizing conflict among heirs
- Minimizing taxes
- Minimizing expenses
- Establishing who would be guardian to any minor children
