Most people have some understanding of what a will is, but many people do not fully understand why it is imporant to have a will and all the things that a will can do. It is important to have a will to avoid any confusion or conflict over the disposition of your property and the administration of your estate, to ensure your minor children are left in the care of the right people, and to avoid estate tax liability that could diminish your loved ones' inheritance. Wills not only name and control who will receive your property when you pass away. They can also name a personal representative (a.k.a. executor) who will be responsible for your estate; establish guardianships for your minor child(ren); create trusts that will limit when, how, and under what conditions your property is distributed; create trusts that will shelter your assets to avoid estate tax liability; and more.
