Wills and Life Planning
Unless you have a Will, the law decides who will inherit your property.
Whether you are young or old, it is important to write a will for the benefit of those you will leave behind.
Making a will is not hard: you need to think about who you want to look after your affairs, what your assets and debts are (and where they are!). And, of course, who you want to get your property when you die. If you have a child, you will want to appoint a guardian for her or him.
There are other documents you may want to have. A Representation Agreement that specifies who may make medical and personal decisions if you are unable to do so, and includes a Living Will.
You may also choose to have an Advance Directive, which allows you to make a direction about end of life care which is binding on your doctors and hospital.
A Power of Attorney lets you appoint someone to access your bank accounts and pay your bills if you are unable to do so yourself.
