A will is a legally binding document, which often makes people think that creating a will is an expensive undertaking. Another misconception about creating a will is that the process is overly complex and causes more issues than it resolves. However, the process is both straightforward and affordable in the vast majority of cases.
When you have assets and know exactly how you want them distributed upon your death, it makes sense to create a will to that effect. Where most people run into issues is creating a will, but then, locking it away where nobody knows the document exists.
If you are considering creating a will, it helps to consult with an experienced attorney who can answer any questions related to preparation and execution of your wishes. You want to know that your loved ones are left with straightforward instructions on how you want assets divided. Even if you do not own anything of financial value, a will can help avoid unnecessary arguments over treasured memories.
