What is a Will?
Wills help individuals state and define their wishes for distribution of their assets to others that they accumulated during their lifetime. It defines the beneficiaries. It allows you to have peace of mind that your affairs are being handled by someone you hand selected and that your children are being cared for by a guardian you selected. It also helps to expedite the probate process and protect your assets.
Why do I Need a Will?
If you do not have a will, then the courts follow intestacy laws where the state decides how your assets are divided and people may gain access to your assets that you did not intend to inherit anything from you.
What is a Power of Attorney?
Powers of attorney are useful tools that allow you to appoint someone to make legally binding decisions for you when you are unable or unavailable to handle your own affairs.
