USA Today recently had a front page story – Two exes, a spouse, kids, stepkids – Now try drafting a will. In today’s society there are more and more blended families, which makes having a will even more important. But your family dynamics really don’t matter having a will should be a priority. According to attorney Les Kotzer “Everybody need to plan because we’re all going to die. It’s not if, but when.”
Approximately 70% of Americans don’t have a will. A will is a fairly simple document to create so why do so many people avoid it? Just a few reasons might include: I don’t have anything to leave to my heirs; I’ve got plenty of time to write my will; bad things don’t happen to good people; I can’t afford it, etc.
