If you have minor children or a house, you should have a will.
If you don’t have a will:
- A court will decide who will deal with your affairs after your death;
- The State determines who will receive certain types of your property;
- a court must oversee the distribution of your property; and
- if both parents have died, a court will have to determine who will have custody of your children.
