A question we occasionally receive is about simple wills:
“I’m 32 single and renting right now, I do have a car and some other assets can I just have a simple will?”
It is always better to have a simple will rather than nothing. Do you really want the state to determine how your estate is distributed or take the chance that your wishes may not be following in distributing your estate?
A simple will is a good starting point for some people who are young and healthy until such time as they need to take estate planning more seriously. A simple will is inexpensive but offers peace of mind and valuable benefits to ones family in the event of an expected death. It is much better to be safe than sorry when it comes to your estate planning.
