“Horror Stories: When You Die Without A Will”

I came across the attached article today and it highlights the extremes as to why everyone over the age of 18 should have a Will in place.  The lowdown:

1 – Death causes siblings/heirs to fight with each other.

2 – Mom or Dad remarries.  New husband or wife gets most everything.

3 – Life Partner gets no legal rights.

4 – Life Insurance ends up in the wrong hands.

5 – Heirs are left trying to find all of the deceased’s assets.

6 – Partner owes enormous taxes on property.

7 – Court filings and Probate process in general can be time consuming and expensive.

Don’t let this happen to you or your loved ones!
