Wills

Central Florida Will Attorney

Central Florida Will Attorney

A will is one of the most important documents that you could create in your life. In a will, you can designate beneficiaries, determine who you wish to care for your children if you have any under the age of 18, and what you wish to happen with your home and other assets. Having a will makes the process following your death easier on family and loved ones, saving them money and any additional stress. If you do not have a will, your assets or belongings could go to people you did not anticipate. Outlining your desires in a legal document will ensure that your wishes are respected and carried out.

Misconceptions

Did you know that only 50% of Americans have a written will outlining their final wishes? That means that half of U.S. citizens leave it up to the government to decide what happens with their belongings. If you have specific goals in mind for your assets, it is imperative that they be laid out in a will. There is a major misconception that wills are only for the elderly or sick, but that is simply not true. While over 90% of those with a will are over 60 years of age, it could be very beneficial for younger adults to take the time to draft a will; it is especially important if they have a spouse and/or children. In most states, you can create a will as young as 18 years old. Another misconception is that writing and maintaining a will is time-consuming and expensive. While the time it takes to document all of one’s wishes varies from person to person, creating a will is not always costly– especially if you have a simple estate. You could always use an online template to get started as well and cut down on the time it takes to create the document. The benefits of taking the time to delineate your desires far outweigh the negatives; no one wants a stranger taking over their estate and belongings.
