Reasons You Should Have A Will


should i have a will 

Brooklyn Home Owner Wondering should you  have a will?  You should have a will regardless of the size of your assets.


 If you die without a will a  state/city government  agency will have  to decide who receives your assets. 

Should you have minor children, a judge will have to decide which family  member or state agency will have legal guardianship. 

By having a will  and other documents  naming the legal guardian, you will be able to choose the person that you consider to be most responsible and trustworthy to take care of your minor children. Having a will ensures that with the guidance of an estate attorney, a  named executor will be able  to liquidate your accounts, pay debts, sell your home, distribute your assets and follow other instructions that you have indicated. In addition to a will you should : 


Review - Update or change the beneficiaries that you have named  on  your life insurance policies, retirements accounts  * even if you have a will the financial  instruction  of these types of accounts will pay the proceeds to the person named  on the policies regardless of what is stated in your will.
