Wills and Probate

A will is probably one of the most important but overlooked documents you’ll likely come across. If you pass on without a will and have immediate family, you’ll leave your family with a significant problem, especially if you own a home or have other monetary assets.

A will is important because it clearly outlines your wishes, how you want your personal estate divided up among family or even charitable causes. Furthermore, properly executed, a will is a legal document giving your family / executors the powers they need to pass on your assets as you wish.
