It is often difficult to think about your death when you are a young and healthy individual, but unexpected accidents and illnesses can happen to anyone, regardless of age, and you want to be sure your assets are handled properly after your death. Plan for the future and meet with a wills lawyer in Sherwood Park to draw up a legal will. If you need more convincing, consider these two reasons:
Your children should be your first priority. We all assume we’ll be around long enough to see our children into adulthood and ensure they are raised properly. But what about if the unexpected happens? You want to be sure your children are placed in the care of a trustworthy individual, someone you have chosen yourself. Without a will, the courts will decide who will be guardians over your children. A proper will gives you the power to decide who will be best at raising and loving your children when you aren’t around to do it yourself.
Without a will, your assets will be divided up with no input from you whatsoever. In the event of your death, your family will be left trying to figure out what you would have wanted. And in some cases, your family may get no say at all, as the law in your province may be the deciding factor in how your assets are split up. By planning ahead and writing a will, you will ensure your assets are split the way you want and that those closest to you are provided for.
