Wills and estate planning

Estate planning is an often overlooked yet essential part of planning for one's future. As one begins to make the necessary decisions, there are often many questions regarding exactly which tools are best given the Georgia resident's specific situation. In many instances, wills or trusts are appropriate.

70 percent of Americans without wills

At some point in time, each Georgia resident will die. Yet, so many conduct their personal affairs in a manner suggesting that they expect to live forever. In fact, research shows that wills have not been created by approximately 70 percent of Americans.

Wills are an important part of taking care of loved ones

Many Georgia residents assume that because they do not have a large estate, they do not need to prepare a will. What many fail to realize is that a will is an important and often necessary document. In fact, wills are created to benefit the family that is left behind when one dies.

The most important reasons to have a will

One of the most essential things that you can do for yourself and your family is to create a will. A will is a legal document that details how your estate will be handled after you die. A will can, among other things, designate how and to whom your money and property is distributed.
