Most people have a basic understanding of what a will is. However, many put off creating this important legal document, opting to do it “later.” But what if you never get that opportunity? As harsh as it seems, this is at the crux of why having a Last Will & Testament is so important – because tomorrow is never guaranteed.
Creating a Last Will & Testament provides both you and your family peace of mind knowing your wishes, should you pass, will be executed according to your desires. If you are a resident of Georgia and over the age of 14, you are eligible to create a legally binding will. Already have a trust in place? Even those with trusts should have a “pour over” will that covers anything that may have inadvertently been left out of their trust and designates a guardian for any minor children.
