If you die without a will or without having thought through how you want your loved ones to deal with your death (including dividing your stuff), you are left to the mercy of the court and intestacy laws. While it is true that your stuff will get taken care of, the hassle left for your heirs is significant. For instance,
Do you want them to have to decide who will represent your estate?
Do you want them to have to decide how decisions will be made?
Do you want them airing the family laundry in court?
Do you want them to have rely on the court’s schedule for when things can be taken care of?
Do you want them to remember you rather than the hassle your estate caused?
You simply should plan even if it is the most basic of plans. Please contact my office to begin the process at http://www.attorneydrew.com
