Common reasons to create your will

It may be easy to assume that you can avoid a time-consuming hassle by simply telling your loved ones your wishes on what to do after you die. However, as we at the Law Offices of Roche and Roche, PC, are aware, dying without a will can complicate the probate process for those left behind. What if you simply write and sign a document at home and leave it in your safe? There may be reasons to doubt the validity of a handwritten will and to contest it, as you and other Massachusetts residents should be aware.

FindLaw explains that it is never too early to plan your will. The best, and most common, reasons for making or changing your will can include the following:

  • You had a major life change, such as a marriage, divorce or birth of a child.
  • You have accrued significant assets that you intend to be divided amongst your loved ones after your death.
  • You have minor children or pets who will need to be taken care of in the event of your untimely death or incapacitation.
  • You are concerned about becoming mentally or physically disabled and want to make your wishes known.
  • You want to leave an estranged family member out of your will.
  • You have specific requests for your burial and funeral.

Although planning your will is important, it does not have to be complicated or time-consuming. Our page discusses the basics of estate planning, including how to create a solid will and ensure your wishes will be respected after you pass on.
