The Simple Will; No Fuss, No Anxiety
If we do nothing else we should write a will. If you don’t make a will before your death, special rules will determine who gets your property and a court may decide who will raise your children. A legally binding will :
- leaves your property to the people and organizations you choose
- names a guardian to care for your minor children if you can’t
- names someone to manage property you leave to minor children, and
- names your executor, the person with authority to make sure that the terms of your will are carried out.
Lifetime and otherTrusts
Some people need some form of lifetime trust immediately, others will never need one, and most of us fall somewhere in the middle. Factors to consider are your age and wealth, and whether you are married but there are others.A lifetime trust can protect assets and control what happens to your assets in future and may avoid the need for probate. But there are other benefits as well.
