Do I Need A Will

A will can be as simple or complex as you decide to make it. Listen below for some additional insight on the reason and benefits of creating a plan.

Estate Planning or Legacy Planning as I like to call it, is something I think everyone should do. We make plans for the week, for our meals, vacations, and even what shows we will watch with others. Why not make a plan for our lives, finances, or after we are gone? A Will is one way we can make our plans clear and easy for others to understand. Another way to plan is to create a Trust to hold money or other assets you want to pass to your family members and protect from taxes.

What is a Will?

A written legal document that addresses what you want to happen when you die, who will care for your minor children, property, money, miscellaneous belongings, etc. To obtain a Will, you must be at least 18 years old and have the capacity to enter a contract. A valid the Will requires a signature by the person creating the Will, and in most states, two witnesses.
