No matter how small your estate may be, everyone should have a Will. You may be surprised how many beneficiaries fight over the estate of a deceased. A Will can ensure that the right people get what you give to them when you die. Everyone should also have a Power of Attorney for personal care and a Power of Attorney for property. If you become incapable of managing your own property and/or incapable of making decisions as to your own personal care, the State can appoint a Guardian to take care of you. This may not be what you want. Therefore, if you want a trusted friend or family member to take care of you in this time of need you should seriously consider appointing a Power of Attorney.
