Do I need a Will?

Every adult person should probably have a Will or some other estate plan that they have thought about and implemented. A Will is perhaps the most common estate planning device and is one of the simplest and easiest to implement. Most people do not think about getting a Will until an event in their life causes them to feel the need to do so. Some of the most common calls, we at Perry Law Office often get are calls from newlyweds, couples or individuals that have just had or are expecting their first child, someone in bad or deteriorating health, or from an adult child regarding their mother or father who has put it off way to long. The Attorneys at Perry Law office have also had calls from people who did not consider the need for an estate plan until they were getting ready to go on a trip. All of these are great reasons to start thinking about a Will. However, it is best, to consider some sort of an estate plan early in your adult life, but you are never to old to start this process either. You never know what the future might bring, and if you die without a Will or other estate plan your assets might not be distributed to the persons that you want. For example, an adult unmarried individual that has no children and dies without a Will or other estate plan would have their assets distributed to their parents, and their brothers and sisters. This may or may not be what they would actually want to happen. A Will is a easy to dictate where your assets go and who gets them. People are often surprised at how easy, and inexpensive it is to create a simple estate plan. They often comment that if they had known it would be this easy they would have done it much earlier.
