The Importance of a Will

It is strongly advised that you have a will, especially if you have children, you own property or business, or have savings, investments or insurance policies. If you should pass away without a will (intestate), the law will determine who gets your estate. With a will, you ensure that the desired people gain the legal rights to your property, money and possessions.
