Preparing a Will and/or Trust is easy to postpone. Many people do not want to think about their own mortality. Planning your estate’s distribution when you are healthy and stable can bring you great peace of mind that your wishes will survive, even after you are gone. Even though the Commonwealth of Virginia has codified what will happen to your property after your death, it is not always what you desire. Individuals who pass without a Will often leave their loved ones with problems that can too often cause rifts in families and end in litigation.
The Code of Virginia allows for testators (people who have wills) to not only decide where property will go, but also to provide their last wishes for their remains (burial and/or cremation), custody of a child, and other requests.
