Why You Should Have a Last Will and Testament

Having a Will is important. Not only can it save your loved one’s time and money, but it can protect your legacy as well. You should update your Will as your circumstances change.

Probate Process

When you pass away, your estate goes to the probate court. Your personal representative, also known as the executor, decides who receives what from your estate. Your assets include bank accounts, real estate, and other properties. Your heirs can have a long and expensive process to settle your affairs.

Personal representatives

Your personal representative must account for all transactions. He or she may not be able to give you half of your cash or a portion of your house. However, you can name beneficiaries for specific assets.


Having a Will can help avoid family disputes. If you do not leave a Will, your relatives will have to guess what you would have wanted them to do with your property. In many cases, they are not happy with what they receive. They can even end up in litigation.

Your Will can protect you from a lawsuit if you do not want a certain person to inherit your property. This includes children, grandchildren, siblings, and ex-spouses. It can also be used to support your favorite causes.

A Will is a written document that specifies the disposition of your property upon your death. If you do not have a Will, your assets will be distributed according to state intestacy laws. These laws determine who will care for your minor children and who will receive your assets.

Washington is a city in south central Washington CountyUtah, United States and is a part of the St. George Metropolitan Area. The area is also known as Utah’s Dixie because the Mormon pioneers who settled the St. George area came to the area to raise cotton, which was milled at the cotton mill in Washington. The population was 8,186 at the 2000 census, and 18,761 as of 2010. Washington is a fast-growing suburb of St. George, and is the second largest city in Washington County.[5]

The city was named after U.S. President George Washington.[6] The city administration has tried to encourage the use of the name “Washington City” in recent years.[7] The U.S. Post Office lists “Washington, UT 84780.”
