58% of adults in America do not have wills set up. But why do you need one? A will is a legal document that defines who will take care of your children and outlines what to do with your assets when you’re gone. It allows you, not the government, to control your assets after your death. Work with a lawyer to ensure that your will is structured properly, valid and enforceable.
Meet Matt and Mary Wilson.
Matt is a senior executive. Mary is a hospital volunteer. They have three kids, a house in the burbs, a condo at the beach and are saving for retirement. But like fifty-eight percent of adults in America, Matt and Mary do not have a will. They need one and here’s why.
A will is a legal document that defines who is going to take care of your children and outlines what to do with your assets when you’re gone.

If you’re like the Wilson’s and need a will, here’s what’s involved:
There are so many reasons why wills are important. Work with your trusted advisor and an estate attorney to write your will. Then update it every three years to make sure it fits your present situation and conforms to current state laws. That way you know your family, your loved ones, and your assets are all protected.
