Last Will & Testament
Wills, at thier most basic, are legal documents that list your wishes and assure that they will be carried out after you pass. Wills are an important part of planning for he future and not just for "Old" or "Rich" individuals. The truth is anyone of legal age that have possessions that are important should have a Will.
First off, forget about everything you've seen in the movies. There will not likely be an official Will reading at which all your loved ones will gather and fight over who gets what. Will's, if drafted by a professional, are very hard to contest. Also, the notion of listing individual items for distribution in your will is a Hollywood exaggeration. There is typically a provision in your Last Will and Testament that allows for you to prepare a separate list at your leisure to accompany your will if you wish. This list should be kept with your Will so that it is easily found when needed. For more insight regarding Wills and Probate, visit our Blog by John Slavin.
