Video: The Number 1 Reason People Don't Have A Will
This is the number one reason people don't have a Will. It's not that they don't understand the importance of having one. And it's not that they don't know how to go about creating one.
The main reason people put off making a Will is because they simply haven't gotten around to it. Life is busy and there are always other things that seem to be more pressing.
But the truth is, putting off making a Will can have serious consequences for your loved ones. If you die without a Will (dying intestate), your assets will be divided up according to the laws of your state. This may not be the way you would have wanted them to be divided.
And if you have young children, it's especially important to have a Will. A Will gives you the opportunity to designate a guardian for your children in the event of your death. Without a Will, the court will decide who will raise your children and this may not be someone you would have chosen.
Making a Will is an important step in protecting your loved ones and ensuring that your assets are distributed the way you want them to be. But it's also a task that many people procrastinate on. If you don't have a Will, now is the time to make one. It could be the most important thing you ever do for your family.
Stop procrastinating and get your Will done! It's the best thing you can do for your loved ones.
