Many young adults with minor children believe executing a Last Will & Testament is not a priority because they are young and healthy. However, we all know that tragedy can strike at any time, and being prepared is your best bet, especially if you have a minor child. A Will can help protect your minor child or children in a few ways.
Many responsible people execute a Last Will & Testament; but unfortunately, many of those same people shove it in a drawer and forget about it for years, sometimes even decades. Failure to keep your Will up to date can lead to just as many problems as not having a Will at all. When you initially execute your Will, it represents your intentions and feelings as of the moment you sign the Will. However, as you become older, your circumstances and desires often change.
