What Is a Will?

A will is a legal document that allows you to decide how your property and possessions will be distributed after your death. It also names a guardian for your minor children. Without a will, the state will decide who inherits your property and who cares for your children.

A will can be changed or revoked at any time. However, it is important to remember that any changes to your will must be officially documented and signed by a notary.

Here are some of the things you can do with a will:

  • Name an executor to carry out your final wishes
  • Determine who will inherit your property
  • Appoint a guardian for your minor children
  • Name a guardian for your pets
  • Choose a funeral home
  • Control how your property is distributed
  • Control how your debts and taxes are paid
  • Appoint a guardian for your minor children
  • Decide where your remains will be buried or scattered

A will can be changed or revoked at any time. However, it is important to remember that any changes to your will must be officially documented and signed by a notary.

What Happens If I Don't Have a Will?

Without a will, the state will decide how your property and possessions will be distributed after your death. The laws of intestacy determine who inherits your property and who cares for your children. In most cases, this will be your spouse, but if you do not have a spouse, then your children will receive your property. If you have no spouse or children, then your parents will receive your property.

If you have minor children, the state will appoint a guardian for them. If you have minor children and no spouse, then the state will decide who will care for your children.

It is more difficult to ensure that your property and possessions are distributed in the way you want without a will. If you have minor children, it is especially important to have a will to ensure that your children are cared for. Without a will, it is more difficult to ensure that your property and possessions are distributed in the way you want.
