1. Where there’s No Will…..there is No Way….

If you do not write a Will, the State has already written one for you. Your assets go to whoever a state law says receives the assets, or to the government itself! A Will should be a testimony to the things you truly care about: your spouse, your children, your parents, your friends, your Church and charities. You can consider remembering your church or school.

If You Have No Will:

Compiled By Kenneth Vercammen, Esq.

If you leave no Will or your Will is declared invalid because it was improperly prepared or is not admissible to probate:

* State law determines who gets assets, not you

* Additional expenses will be incurred and extra work will be required to qualify an administrator-Surety Bond, additional costs and legal fees

* Judge determines who gets custody of your children

* Possible additional State inheritance taxes and Federal estate taxes

* If you have no spouse or close relatives the State may take your property

* The procedure to distribute assets becomes more complicated

* It may also cause fights and lawsuits within your family

When loved ones are grieving and dealing with death, they shouldn’t be overwhelmed with Financial concerns.

Think- Who don’t you want to receive your assets? Without a Will, they could receive your assets
