The thought of passing away before you’ve had the chance to allocate your valuable assets to your loved ones may be an idea that strikes fear into your heart. You want to be sure that they are taken care of when you’re gone, and that the wealth that you’ve worked so hard to accumulate throughout your life is not allocated by state representatives who care nothing for your family. Although it is not a requirement that you have a will, if you want to be the one who chooses how what you have and what you’ve earned in your life is distributed after your death, a will is necessary.
Perhaps you are on the other side of the will, and someone you love has passed away. In cases like these, a loved one’s assets may not be distributed in the way you know they would have wanted. If they didn’t have a will, or they were not of sound mind when creating their will – or even if someone was putting undue influence on them during the creation of the will – you may need to speak with a knowledgeable attorney who is familiar with the laws surrounding wills and estates.
