A Will – Not Just For the Wealthy

By Vanessa DeDominicis

“I don’t need a Will, I don’t have anything”……YES YOU DO! Do you have relatives? Do you have a bank account? Do you have a vehicle? Do you own a home (even if it has a mortgage on it)? Do you have children? If you answered yes to ANY of those questions, then you need a Will.

Whether an estate plan is simple or complex, a Will forms an integral part of that plan. It does not matter how much or how little you have, a Will is essential for everyone. A Will is your chance to deal with your assets in your own way, following your wishes and your beliefs. It gives you the chance to appoint YOUR choice of Executor, YOUR choice of Guardian for your children. It is not just a tool for the wealthy to pass down their legacy. It is something you do for those you leave behind. It makes things easier for them to deal with on your behalf, once you are gone.
