DIRECTING MATTERS AFTER YOU ARE GONE

A will is the first and most basic step in ensuring your property is protected and will be distributed according to your wishes after your death. Without a will, state law typically determines who will receive your assets. A will allows your beneficiaries to circumvent these laws and receive your property as you have designated. A will also allows parents of minor children to assign a guardian in the event of the parent(s) death.
