Do I Need a Will?

To the commonly asked question, “Do I need a will?” we recommend that every adult have a will to set forth his or her intentions and wishes upon their death.

If you die without a will, the Pennsylvania state law will dictate how your estate will be distributed, which may not be what your wishes are.

You should name the person who you want to handle your affairs after your death. This person is called the Executor.

In addition, if you have children and they are minors, your will should name a guardian, otherwise the court will dictate who will have custody of your minor children.

Preparing your will is just plain good stewardship and planning of your assets and your affairs!
