Why do you need a Will? Having a Will provides your specific instruction after your death of who gets your stuff, what kind of funeral you desire, and where you want to be buried or scattered. If you have no Will, your entire estate is turned over to the state to handle under the laws of that state. Your entire estate includes your bank accounts, real estate, and all assets at the time of your death. Little Susie will only receive your grand piano if you state accordingly in your Will. Without a Will, Little Susie receives nothing from your estate.
Consider your martial status at the time of your death: Single with no children? Single with children? Married with no children? Married with children? Unmarried couples? Domestic partners? With so many circumstances in our day-to-day world, do not take a chance with your loved ones remaining, talk with an attorney or learn more about making a Will as soon as possible. No one likes to talk or plan about death, but remember, it sure is easier when you are above ground!
