How to Create a Last Will & Testament
Creating a will is an important part of estate planning, but it is also one of the most misunderstood legal documents. When you create a will, you are not signing away all of your possessions and assets to a single heir. In fact, there are certain types of financial accounts and property that require different estate planning documents or a trust.
There are several important things to consider when creating a will, including and not necessarily limited to:
- Deciding how you want your property distributed
- Choosing guardians for minor children
- Naming an executor
- Deciding how you want your pets cared for
What Is a Living Will?
A living will is a document that states your wishes for medical care in the event of an extended illness or an end-of-life situation. A living will can specify whether you want to be on life support and how much medical intervention you want in the event of a terminal illness. A living will can also include instructions for the disposal of your remains after you pass away. If you want to ensure that your wishes are respected, it is important to create a living will and make sure that your family and loved ones are aware of your instructions.

When you create a will, you are ensuring that your wishes are respected after you pass away. A will can also help your loved ones avoid costly legal battles over the distribution of your property, and it can also give your loved ones clear direction so they don't have to agonize over difficult decisions. If you pass away without a will, however, your property will be distributed according to the rules of intestacy. When you create a will, you can decide how you want your property distributed and ensure that your loved ones are taken care of.
