In order to provide for the distribution of your estate to your family or other beneficiaries at the time of death a will is needed. Your will directs where you assets will go after your death. If you do not have a will then your estate will be distributed by the state of Tennessee. This will cause your family a lot of stress that is unnecessary and delay the estate being settled after a death when you don’t have a will in place.
We all know that everyone should have a will. Estate planning attorneys and lawyers also advise that just having a will isn’t enough that you should have the will reviewed every few years and every time there is a major life changes like a marriage, birth or death for example.
However for many people they fail to protect their estate by following this advice for many reasons such as:
- think their estate will be distributed to their families regardless of them having a will
- believe the will they had prepared long ago will protect their estate
- feel uncomfortable talking about death or planning for it
- or simply procrastinating on getting their estate in order
