Leaving your family trying to guess what your wishes would be for the disposition of your assets can cause numerous problems. You should provide direction to your family, so they will have the peace of mind of knowing they are following your wishes. This means putting a will in place while you have the capacity to make those decisions.
While most of us do not want to think about our own mortality, a will provides not only a template for what happens upon your death, it can also provide you with protections in the event you suffer a life-altering disability which leaves you unable to communicate your wishes to your loved ones. A will allows you to name a person you trust to carry out your wishes. Working with an attorney, you can clearly communicate with family members about your assets, your wishes for end-of-life medical care, and directions about your healthcare wishes in the event of disability.
