Myths About Planning a Will

Posted on February 18th, 2011 No Comments

Wills are extremely important documents that make sure your last wishes are carried out when you die. They can help and protect the people that you love and are closest to you during your life. However, there are many common misconceptions about creating a will and how a will is carried out.

One such myth is that a will is not needed if one does not have many assets. This is just not true. Most people are worth more than they know, and everything they own can have value to someone in their life. Another myth is that a spouse will receive everything, so it is not necessary to create a will. This may be true, but, if the spouse dies, remaining assets may not be divided the way they were intended.

Furthermore, many people wonder why they should have their wills written by attorneys when they can do it themselves. A will is a legal document. An attorney will assure that all of the correct legal jargon is used so that a person’s wishes are carried out correctly.

It is important to plan ahead in life. If you would like more information on planning your will, please contact the Houston estate planning lawyers of Garg & Associates, P.C. at 281-362-2865.
