The foundation of any solid estate plan is a will. Also known as a last will and testament, a will is used to ensure that your property and assets are distributed according to your wishes in the event of incapacitation or death. Most frequently, wills are used to pass property to family members or other loved ones, called beneficiaries. However, wills can also be used to leave assets to organizations, such as charities. Having a valid will is very important as, without one, your property will be distributed in accordance with state law, regardless of your wishes.

Understanding Wills in North Carolina
Whether you have accumulated numerous valuable assets or you have relatively little property, wills are beneficial for everyone. Not only do they allow you to dictate how your assets and property will be divided, they also allow you to choose a guardian for your children, name an executor of the will to ensure that it is carried out properly, and denote an individual who can manage any property left to beneficiaries who are minors. You can also use a will to denote who will not receive any of your property or assets.
