Many people sincerely intend to create a Will, but most do not actually follow through with their intentions. This is unfortunate since a well-written Will addresses many concerns that you and your family members have about your wishes and your estate.
There will never be a “perfect time” to draft a will, which is why it is so important to begin working on one now. Your Will not only distributes your assets, it also names guardians and executors of your estate and trusts, makes provisions for businesses, establishes charitable gifts, and plans for taxes or other administrative costs. In addition to all of this, drafting a Will with your attorney now can save your family many hours of arguing and lengthy legal battles in the future.
