Wow - middle of August already. Where did the time go? Worse, where did the summer go?

Why You Need a Legal Will

Nov 1st 2010 at 9:57 AM

There are few things in life that are a complete certainty; death and taxes most likely being the first that come to mind. While almost everyone files their taxes every year and makes sure that everything is in order, over half of North Americans do not have a legal will!

Why would you go through all the effort to make sure that the government gets their fair share of your money and not do the same to make sure that your loved ones are taken care of once you pass on?

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.
