The Importance of Having a Will in Pennsylvania
Most people in the United States die without a will. It’s very understandable that a family experiences great emotional pain when someone dies. But if that person dies without a will, it creates stress and work that could have been avoided with a will. Everything you worked for your entire life could be placed in jeopardy if you died without a will. Here’s why.
Why do I need a will if I lived in Pennsylvania?
A will is a written, legal document that tells your family and the State of Pennsylvania how you want your assets to be disposed when you die. It’s important that every person over 18 years old who owns assets should have a will.
The important things you should have in your will is who will manage and distribute your assets, who will receive your assets, and who will become the guardian and raise your children. A well-written will by an experienced estate planning lawyer will leave you with peace of mind knowing that your wishes will be followed when you’re no longer here.
What happens if I die without a will?
Your county’s Register of Wills will determine where your assets go if you died without a will. The state will not take into account the needs of your individual family members, including non-family members that were close to you. Your assets will be distributed based on state law. Also, your children might be placed in foster care. These are some of the major reasons why you need a will.
