Why You Should Have a Prepared Last Will and Testament

There are many cautionary steps that one can make to insure the safety of one’s self and/or family; having an updated and prepared Last Will and Testament is one of the most important of those cautionary steps. What is a Last Will and Testament? A Last Will and Testament is a legal document that directly states a person’s intentions and wishes on how their assets are to be handled after their death. This document can be specifically drafted based on your current situation or wants.

A Last Will and Testament can be used to decide who will manage your estate after your death, who will get your property, who will take care of your children, or set up a trust, make donations and/or gifts, and assist in the probate process. In your Last Will and Testament, you can direct how automobiles, real estate, or money will be divided among beneficiaries. You can also assign an honest and reliable representative who will control your estate. This representative must be over the age of 18 years old. A Last Will and Testament will guarantee that your wishes are carried out after your death.
