A will is a document that the law recognizes that allows a person who has passed away to direct the distribution of their assets. It is important to have a will if you want property you own to go to specific people. If you don’t have a will, the state will impose a distribution mechanism but it might be inconsistent with what you would otherwise have wanted.
