A Last Will and Testament ("Will") is a legal document that outlines your final wishes and instructions regarding the distribution of your assets after your death. It serves as a roadmap for how your estate should be handled and allows you to have control over what happens to your possessions, money, and property. While it may be uncomfortable to think about, creating a Will can ensure that your wishes are carried out and that your loved ones are taken care of when the night comes.

Why Do I Need a Will?

If pass away without a will as a resident of the State of Ohio, Ohio's laws of descent and distribution will control who inherits your estate. So, the real question is whether the default state laws reflect your intentions and desires for who gets what after your passing. By creating a Will, you have the power to determine who receives your property and belongings rather than leaving it up to the courts. But there's more at stake than just property. In addition, you can use a Will to appoint a guardian for your minor children. If something were to happen to you and the other parent of your children, a will allows you to designate who would be responsible for raising them. Having a Will can also help minimize conflicts and tensions among your family members after your passing. Additionally, a Will can help you minimize taxes and expenses associated with the transfer of your assets.
