What Does a Will Do?
A will essentially lays out what you wish to happen after you pass away. Although will-making software and other services exist, it’s especially important to have a trusted attorney look over things and discuss potential complications or oversights in the plan.
A will can accomplish the following:
- Indicate who you want to leave your property to
- Name a guardian to care for any minor children
- Name a trustee to take care of the property you wish to leave to any minor children
- Name an executor who oversees the carrying out of your will
What Happens If I Die Without a Will?
If you die without a will, your property will be distributed by the State of North Carolina according to intestacy laws. This means that your property will first go to your spouse and children. If you do not have a spouse or children, the property would go to your grandchildren or parents, and so on.
