Four Reasons to have a Last Will & Testament:

  1. It allows your property to be transferred according to your wishes. However, the existence of a Will does not affect your ability to sell or dispose of property;
  2. Permits you as the parent, instead of the government, to choose a guardian for your minor children or other dependents such as handicapped adult children;
  3. Reduces the risk of fighting among your survivors. A clear direction from you can help avoid family arguments in the future;
  4. And you can change your Will at any time as your assets, beneficiaries or desires change.
