Why Do You Need a Will?
A will, also known as a last will and testament, states your final wishes. After your death, it is read by a local court, which makes sure that your final wishes are carried out. Most people use a will to leave instructions about what should happen to their finances, possessions and land after they die. A Last Will and Testament can also be used to:
Name an executor who makes decisions on behalf of the estate.
Name guardians for minor children and their property.
Decide how debts and taxes will be paid.
Tell how to distribute possessions and money to beneficiaries, whether they are people, charities or other institutions.
Provide for pets.
And much more.
Wills aren't just for wealthy people who leave behind a lot of possessions and money. Anyone who has specific plans for any possessions and finances after death should have a Last Will and Testament.
A Living Will is somewhat different but, also recommended. A Living Will – or a Will to Live – is a specific type of Power of Attorney or Health Care Proxy. This document lays out your wishes in case you become incapable of telling a doctor how to medically treat you, especially in cases of whether to continue life support.
