Whether you have few assets or a large estate, a will ensures that your property is distributed according to your final wishes.
A will should designate the beneficiaries of your personal property and assign an executor to take care of final estate plans and costs. No matter your age or circumstances, everyone deserves peace of mind that his or her loved ones will be cared for into the future.
Should you die without a will in place, the Commonwealth of Virginia will determine how your property is distributed, without knowing any of your desires.
A will is even more important because it allows you to specify a legal guardian and caregiver for them, particularly if you are a single parent. As with your property, the court will decide who has legal custody of your children should both parents die without naming a guardian through a will.
