What is a Will?

  • A legal document in which you state how you want your assets to be distributed after your death.
  • A will also allows you to name a person to take care of your children. (Guardian)
  • Name a person to carry out your wishes stated in your will. (Executor or Estate Trustee)
  • Plan your estate to minimize taxes.

Importance of a Will

  • No matter the value of your assets or your financial situation, a Will is one of the most  important legal documents you will ever sign.
  • It provides instructions on how you would like your estate to be managed by a trusted person and your assets to be distributed after your death.
  • It stipulates who will take care of your children once both parents are gone.

Without a Will

  • Your estate may not be distributed according to your wishes and intentions.
  • You may be leaving important decisions concerning your assets up to the government.
  • Your death could cause legal and administrative burdens for your loved ones.
