The Importance of Establishing a Will
A will is one of the most common documents in an estate plan and does the bulk of the work in dividing a person's assets upon their death. You may use your will to designate who will receive your property, personal possessions, family heirlooms, funds, and other assets. A will can be as specific as needed, stipulating how assets should be divided and any conditions for the intended beneficiaries. This means the owner of the will may put conditions upon inheritance. For example, the owner of the will may only wish for her nephew to inherit her home if he is over the age of 25, which she may stipulate in her will.
Guardianship & Wills
Besides designating the inheritance of physical possessions and funds, the will may also be used to appoint a guardian. For children under the age of 18, the will may appoint them a guardian, and a back-up guardian in case the first choice is for any reason unable to accept.
