Drafting Wills And Powers Of Attorney
While few people are eager to even think about writing their own wills, it’s important to have one. Even if your property is uncomplicated and you have no dependants, it’s important to make sure that your family and friends know what to do with your property if you are gone. Otherwise, you risk having the state decide on your behalf, and possibly make decisions that you might not agree with.
It’s also important for you to specify what should happen if you are ever unable to speak for yourself because of an unexpected illness or accident.
