So you're ready to create your Legal Will: you've done some thinking about what will happen after you pass, and you want to make sure your heirloom diamond ring goes to your granddaughter and that your first edition books go to your niece. With a Legal Will, you can do all this, and reduce your family's legal costs and the potential for disagreements about your wishes. Without a legal will, the courts decide where everything goes and who cares for your children.
You'd hate to think of your family arguing after your death about what you would have wanted. A Legal Will helps solve that problem and many more. As a legal declaration, your Legal Will allows you to specify how your property will be transferred after your death. The writer determines what person or organization (an executor) will be responsible for carrying out their wishes. It's true that a Legal Will does go through Probate Court, but with a Will in place, it helps a judge easily determine who receives your estate according to your wishes, instead of default laws determining who gets what. You can use this Legal Will if you're single or married and you can use it to provide for your children of any age.
