A will be one of the most important documents you’ll ever sign, when it comes to protecting your assets and estate for you loved ones. When you have a will, an executor will be assigned and will be the person who controls what happens to the estate of the deceased. They only become executor to the will after the person dies. This is why a will is so very important to prepare. Many people think that you should only prepare a will when you become old. But you should make a will as soon as you become of legal age and have assets to protect. If you were to die suddenly from an accident or become incapacitated and not able to make decisions, the will can provide protection for your assets and make sure they are given to who you choose. A will indicates legally how your estate will be dispersed when you pass. A will can also be changed while you are alive and can also be used to ensure who becomes the guardian for any minor children.

A will may also be challenged and if a legal challenge is made to a will it will most likely end up in the court system under probate. A living will allows person to make medical decisions for them once they become incapacitated or unable to make the decisions. It may also be a good idea to have a health care power of attorney included with your living will. A living trust is used to manage the estate and keep it from going into probate in the court system. A living trust can only protect you from probate if the assets are placed into it. Probate is a legal document which allows a will to disperse a person’s estate after they pass. Probate without the proper protection from a will or trust can result in your estate ending up in limbo in the court system. This court probate can take a long time, be very costly and created unwanted stress about the division of your estate between your loved ones. With a trust your estate will remain out of the court system and be distributed privately. There are some assets such as death proceeds from an insurance policy that is not affected by probate. Without a will or a trust the estate may go into probate and all decisions and distribution of the estate will be left to the court. Many times this may turn into a long drawn out and expensive process.
