What to avoid when writing a will

Posted on January 19th, 2012 No Comments

A will is an important document to have drawn up while you are still living in order to prepare for life after your death. If someone is unsure of how they want to distribute their assets or who their possessions should go to, it is necessary to have professional help. Without professional opinions, common mistakes could be made when writing a will.

These mistakes could include:

  • Leaving out assets
  • Dismissing mandatory fees and taxes
  • Not naming all guardians
  • Forgetting minute details such as; date and witnesses
  • Vague description of possessions

Although these mistakes would not be made on purpose, they do have several consequences associated with them. After your death, your family will, unfortunately, have to go through a long probate process in order to even receive items listed in your will.
