People find wills to be helpful in denoting their desires in regards to the handling of their affairs once they pass. One of the most important designations of a will is the distribution of assets.
If you already have a will written and approved by an attorney, then you are already far ahead of most American adults. However, a will should never remain a stagnant document. If you create your will early on in life in your 20s or 30s, then you will need to update it constantly throughout the years. One time when you definitely want to alter it occurs when you move to another state.
If you currently have a will, then you are already far ahead of over half of American adults. A report by Fox Business found that only about 42 percent of adults in the United States have adequately planned for the division of assets after their death.
