We all know the old adage that the only things in life that are certain are death and taxes. While almost everyone files their taxes every year, over half of North Americans have not addressed that other certainty, and continue to put off making a Will.
Some people don’t want to write a will, thinking that things will just sort themselves out once they’re out of the picture, but the sad fact of the matter is that settling financial matters after your time have come can be a very complicated and drawn out process.
If you don’t have a legal will written before you die, any number of things can occur, the courts will decide who gets what and if you don’t have any children, all of your possessions will be come property of the sate, in some jurisdictions.
Preparing such and important document doesn’t have to be a harrowing experience. Writing a will is simple and you don’t even need to hire an expensive lawyer.
The Will Kits for Canada, the United States, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom are available online, are straight forward and easy to use, and can be downloaded right onto your home computer.
