If you’re concerned about what happens to your family and your assets after you’re gone, having a will is especially important.
Knowing that you took the time to assign a guardian for their future can relieve potential stress for your family. Your children will know that you cared enough to ensure that they were placed with a guardian you’ve selected, someone you trust.
Without a will, there’s a risk that a court will determine what happens to your family. There’s even a risk that your children could end up with strangers in foster homes.
Without a will, your family may not receive the full benefits of the legacy of assets you worked so to create for them. Without a written will, it will be left to the courts to determine how your assets will be divided, and your family might receive only a portion of your estate. Someone else may receive assets that you did intend for them to have.
It’s your legacy, so you would do well to engage a firm to assist you in estate planning. At Meurer Law Offices in Denver, we are specialists in all aspects of estate planning.
