There are many people who do not have a will in place in case of their deaths. In fact, some sources say that this number is close to seventy percent of people do not have a will in place. A last will is a document that lists out the assets that the people own and tells where those assets are to go in case of their death. The online will forms will also tell who the guardian will be of the children if the parents both die. These wills can be formed without the help of a lawyer, especially if the person does not have a complex situation regarding his estate.
If the estate is more complex, then the person will usually have to hire an estate lawyer to take care of the will preparation so that nothing important is missed in regards to the assets or the execution of the will after the person has died. In more complex situations, there might need to be trust accounts set up for the children and grandchildren, as well as other considerations that people might not be aware of without professional help.
