As we head into 2023, I always like to remind people that everyone should have a will. Getting a will done is a great and easy resolution for the new year.
Everyone should have a will so that they get to decide themselves how their assets will be divided upon their death. Having a will in place saves families needless hassle and headaches of having to deal with a lengthy and expensive probate process.
If you have a young children, a will allows you to decide who will take care of them and how they will receive your assets. For example, you can set up a trust for a minor child and name a trustee who you trust to handle the money for you child. Otherwise, these decisions will be left up to the probate court and may not be what you would choose.
Another great reason to get your will done is that it’s a very easy process. Most wills involve just one meeting with an attorney to plan out and a couple of hours at most to get everything done.
