Thinking about your mortality is unpleasant. But, writing a will is an excellent way of taking care of your family when you pass away. However, when writing your will, here are some mistakes you should avoid.
- Not naming your executor – this person is responsible for settling your will when the time comes.
- Not having a witness or signing a will – chances are your will won’t be honored.
- Relying solely on a joint will – it’s wise for couples to have separate wills as some states don’t recognize joint wills.
