My spouse and I are both young and have young children. We don’t have a lot of money or property. Do we really need a will?

A common belief amongst young people is that they do not need a will because well, they are young and wills are for people who are old and going to die. The truth is that it is not fun to think about creating a will and can be very hard to even get around to setting up an appointment to make a will because let’s face it, who wants to think about making a will and dying? The reality, however, is that especially if you have young children, it is so important that you have a will because without one, your children may be left in a terrible lurch if there is no clear indication from you who you would like to take care of them if you are gone. Creating a will is one of the most responsible and important acts you can do as a parent.
