A will ensures your assets and property are distributed how you want them to be. Without a will, your assets will be seized and distributed by the government. A will might be a good idea if:
You are married – If you do not want your spouse to receive all your assets, a will is necessary.
You have kids – You will want to contact an estate planning attorney so you can be sure your children are able to inherit property or assets as you wish.
You have a positive net worth – You may want a living will even if you are single and have no children to distribute your assets.
