Unfortunately, when people pass, a lot of them have not prepared a will in advance. This results in their family members having to handle their estate and everything that goes with it.
Many issues can arise as a result of a person having no will. If a person unfortunately passes without a will, the estate could be contested and wind up in the courts for a long period of time, family may start fighting over their loved ones assets or their final perceived wishes as well as many other unexpected issues that may come about. By being prepared, these issues can be avoided, allowing everyone to grieve and move forward without worry.
