Who needs a will?
One of the questions I am asked the most in the practice of law is “do I need a Will?” My answer is always inevitably “everyone needs a Will.” A Will is a legal document that the Court will rely on to decide how and to whom to distribute your assets (i.e. your possessions) when you die. If you die without a Will in place, state law will dictate what happens to your belongings at death. Likely, the state’s method of distribution is not in line with how you yourself would leave your assets. You will likely find that the state’s preferred method is even a far cry from how you would predict the state would distribute your estate. For instance, most people believe that a spouse would automatically inherit the estate of the person they
are married to if no will is left. Under Arka
nsas law, this is not the case.
Who takes care of your estate when you have passed? How do you ensure your loved ones are provided for? How can you be certain that your estate will be distributed according to your wishes? These are all questions that can be answered by preparation of a Last Will and Testament.
