What is a Will?
A will, sometimes called a “last will and testament“, is a document that states your final wishes. It is read by a county court after your death, and the court makes sure that your final wishes are carried out in order to benefit your loved ones.

Why a Will is Essential for the Future?
The importance of having a legally enforceable will cannot be underrated. Having a will ensures that the distribution of your assets will be controlled entirely by you and/or whomever you designate.
A will can serve various purposes, most notably by providing a way for a testator to detail how assets should be divided upon his/her death.
Another benefit of a will is that it can allow you to name someone as the legal guardian of your children and/or handle property left to minor children.
Many people often put off obtaining a will for various reasons but in the event that you do not have a will at the time of your passing, State law will be in control of how your assets are distributed to your descendants; which is why it is essential that you and your loved ones have a valid will in order to ensure that your assets are distributed as you see best fit.
