Many people feel that estate planning is only for the very rich, or those with highly complex family situations. This is simply not the case. Most of us, if we knew what will happen without a will, would go running to the nearest lawyer to have a proper will drawn up.
Are you in a common law relationship? Are you in a second marriage? Are you in a relationship with someone who is not the other parent to your children? Are you separated? Are you divorced? Do you have life insurance? Do you have young children?
These are just a few of the common situations that would be made very difficult if you die without a will. Do yourself – and your loved ones – a favour, and get one done.
