Why Do I need a Will? I Don't Own Anything.

Many people die thinking that they don't have anything. Actually, you do have something. You may have a home, a car, a trailer and a tractor, or other property. You may also have life insurance for which the beneficiary is your "estate".

I strongly suggest that you contact a lawyer in the county where you live to get more information. If you don't know the law, please don't write your own Will. There a number of State laws and cases that must be considered before and during the writing of a Will. I've represented clients whose family members wrote their own Wills, which resulted in multiple unpleasant hearings and additional attorney's fees and costs.
