Wills and Estate Planning Now Mean Less Hardship Later
Many people tend to put off drafting a will thinking it is not a worthwhile step or they do not own enough property for it to matter. Many underestimate their net worth and decide the state intestate statutes will distribute their assets fairly after their demise.
In fact, real and personal property transfer to your survivors much less smoothly without a will. Your property will be tied up as the court determines who is entitled to acquire it. With a will making your wishes clearly known, these transfers require less than six months. Without a will, finalizing these transactions can take years, especially if your family members start becoming uneasy and filing will disputes.
