What Is a Living Will?
You need to create a living will that states your wishes if were to become incapacitated or seriously ill. A living will specifies medical and other important directives that your representative must adhere to while you are unable to communicate your wishes.
What If I Die Without a Will?
It is important to have a signed will at the time of your death, otherwise, your assets and property will have to go through probate, which means your belongings will be distributed by the state. Without a valid will, your final wishes will not be taken into account.
