When it comes time to prepare Wills, people often make an array of excuses to put it off. They think it takes too long or is too costly or that they don't own anything of value so there's no point.
The truth of the matter is executing legal Wills ensures your estate is settled according to your wishes. The document also aids in expediting the probate process and is necessary for establishing legal guardianship for minor children.
Probate is required to reconcile estates regardless of how much or little a person owns. The process is needed to officially record the decedent's death and legally transfer property to heirs.
