Wills are an incredibly important estate planning tool — one that most people find useful. A will can define who the guardian of a child will be, designate the charities or people who will receive gifts, a portion of the estate or other asset/property distribution specifications. Wills can help you leave a portion of your estate to friends and nonrelatives.
Why You Need A Will
If someone does not have a will and dies, the death is declared "intestate." When this happens, intestate succession laws come into play and assets go to whomever code dictates. This can be someone the decedent does not want, like an estranged relative, a minor child or someone who is not yet equipped to handle the assets. If someone dies with just a will, he or she will still have to go through the probate process.
