A Will is a legal document that details your desires concerning the distribution of your personal property, minor children, your business and its assets, charity donations as well as any investments you have, after you die.
If you pass away without one, you die ‘intestate’ and the courts will decide who gets your property and what will happen to your children. Your personal wishes or situation make no difference and the law applies to everyone. A will is important as it will give you peace of mind that you have left things in good order for your family and it will save them time, money and grief.
There are a number of types of Wills. It’s important to know the difference as not all of them will stand up in court.
A Testamentary Will is the traditional formally prepared document signed in the presence of and by, witnesses. It’s also known as a Self-Proving Will.
A Living Will has nothing to do with your assets but deals rather with your life. It details the medical care and life support you would prefer in case you are unable to articulate these for yourself.
