Why do I need a Will?

You need a Will in order whenever you anticipate giving away probate assets (assets that do not pass by beneficiary forms) that are in your individual name when you pass away. Wills are also required to appoint guardians to care for your minor children whenever there is no natural parent available to do so. Although there are instances where a Will is not necessary, the best way to provide comfort and direction to family and loved ones when you are no longer around is to execute a Will and to update it periodically.
