Create Your Will in Minutes If you die without making a valid last will and testament, you will have died intestate. You will then have no control over who your property is distributed to or even who takes care of your children following your death. Both of these matters will be determined by state laws which are often decades old. There is also the added risk that your estate could be substantially depleted due to the high levels of legal and professional fees associated with dying intestate. Making a last will and testament is the only way to ensure that you have control over these matters and that you can properly provide for the needs of your family. This self-help kit provides you with step-by-step instructions, detailed information and all the legal forms necessary to make a will and to ensure that your property passes to your loved ones after your death. Make cash and specific property gifts to your loved ones Appoint guardians to care for your minor children Appoint executors to wind up your estate Create trusts for minor beneficiaries Make funeral arrangements
