What Goes Into A Will?

A will should clearly state your wishes regarding:

  • The distribution of your property and assets upon your death
  • The guardianship of minor children upon your death
  • The person you wish to serve as executor/personal representative of your estate

A simple will can ease your stress. If you have young children, you can take your time to consider who you want to raise them. If you have a family home, a vacation property or even a classic car, you can name how you would like these assets distributed. Additionally, you can consider who would be able to step in after you have died to manage the final affairs of your estate. Once your will is created, you can modify it as the years go by to address your changing needs and goals.
