Preparing a will may be something many people find a little morbid, but it’s a very important thing to do. Even though it does mean thinking about one’s own death, creating a will not only provides guidelines for the distribution of your property, it can also help protect your heirs. It will often save them money and time and it will also remove any question or doubts as to your final wishes and decisions.
Once you’ve created your last will and testament, you may believe you are finished with this depressing chore. However, over the years, you may find that you need to update or completely redo your will. There are a variety of things that can make this necessary, including marriage or divorce, having children, changing your beneficiaries, and/or selling or buying property. Here are some basic steps to keep in mind when changing your will.
