Typically, people may leave property to any person they wish and they make such designations in their Will. A Will is simply a formal way of setting forth your wishes regarding how you would like your property distributed upon your death. You should consider a Will whether you are single, married, have minor children or own even a small amount of personal assets or property. In fact, every adult should have a Will or other means to control the disposition of their assets. If you have not formalized your intentions, your estate may meet with the unnecessary and costly litigation, adding to the grief experience by your survivors. Avoid the financial and emotional turmoil of Will contest and other legal wrangling by choosing an experienced probate attorney at Hanlon & Zubkus.
