Do I need a Will?
In one word: Yes. Everyone should execute a Will in order to provide for the orderly administration of their estate, the proper passing of their property, the appropriate accommodation and care for their minor or disabled children and many additional reasons. It is especially important to execute a Will if you have minor children, you have substantial assets, you, or your spouse, are in a second marriage, you or your spouse have children with a previous partner, you have children, or family member(s) with special needs, or you have specific desires for the distribution of your property.
