A will is more than just a legal document. A person’s last will and testament reflect their values and how they want their legacy to be remembered and passed down amongst their heirs and beneficiaries. It will is a legal document in which you designate the person or persons who will receive the assets that you currently own. This is also the document where you can appoint legal guardians for your minor children.

Just having the knowledge that there is a plan in place can bring you enormous peace of mind, regardless of your current age. On that note, we want to say that a last will and testament is not just for those who are reaching the latter stages of their life. These documents should be drafted by anybody who has any assets that they will pass on as well as anybody who has any minor children who will need to be cared for should something happen to them.
If you have a last will and testament drafted, you should have it reviewed periodically to ensure that it continues to be accurate and reflect your current situation.

What you wanted five or ten years ago may not be what you want now.
