A person's death leaves many questions but one of them is not how the person's property will be distributed. State law dictates how the deceased's property is distributed if the deceased did not have a will at the time of death. However, many people may not necessarily agree with the way the state determines the distribution of the property and who will be responsible for this distribution.
A will allows an individual to specify how all their assets which have not already passed on to others as a matter of law (probate estate) are distributed. A will also allows the person creating the will to name an executor responsible for handling the individuals final expenses and for distributing the probate estate. A will also allows the individual to specify guardians to take care of any minor children and to handle financial matters for the children until the children reach the age of majority.
A will is unique for each individual based on their desires and situation. The Law Offices of Ravi K.
