For many it’s good old procrastination that gets in the way, you know “I’ll get to it tomorrow” but tomorrow may never come or tragedy can strike and you may not have the time to put your wishes in writing.
There is no time like the present to start preparing your will. Making a will today is easier than ever before with many low-cost and online options. But if you can afford a reasonably priced attorney it would be in your best interest to have a professional create the best legal document for your individual needs. Along with the will they should include a durable power of attorney and a living will.
