Reasons you should have a last will and testament
aka will, last will, will and testament
A last will and testament is a legal document that allows you to communicate your final wishes as it pertains to how your property and assets will be passed to your beneficiaries. You can also appoint someone you trust as the executor of your will to ensure your wishes are carried out.
A last will and testament allows you to name someone you trust to be the guardian of your minor children if you were to unexpectedly pass away.
Decide who will take care of your minor children
Name a guardian for your minor children if you pass away. Without a will, the courts will step in and decide for you and appoint someone to raise your children. Make sure your children will be in the care of someone you trust.
Decide how your property will be distributed
Determine how your property will be divided among your heirs. Without a will and estate plan, the courts will determine what happens to your assets and property and how your assets will be transferred upon your death. Having the proper documents can save your family members time and frustration and will ensure your assets are dispersed according to your wishes.

Do I need a last will or a living trust?
Everyone needs a will, but depending on your circumstance you might also need a living trust. If you have children and/or own a home, a living trust might be a more efficient way for you to distribute your property after death.
A living trust allows you to avoid probate, saving your family both time and thousands of dollars.
What happens if you die without a will?
The laws of the state of Utah will decide how your property is distributed to your beneficiaries, namely your spouse, children and close relatives. If you have minor children, a judge will decide who will care for them.
When to use a last will and testament:
- To specify your final wishes
- To distribute property to your beneficiaries after death
- To choose a personal representative (executor) to carry out your wishes
- To name a guardian for your minor children
