What Happens to My Children if I Die Without A Will?

Washington business and real estate lawyer Tom Oldfield talks about why it is so important to discuss and finalize a will before your death.

There are many different decisions you will need to make regarding a will, but the most important is the future of your children. You need to understand what happens to your children if you have not made those decisions for yourself and confirmed them in a will. In the state of Washington, your children under the age of 18 will be placed under a state guardian to make the decision will they will be. You also need to think about money that goes to the children and the appropriate age in which they should have it.

With a will, you can make all those decisions and even appoint someone to watch over the money or gradually release it for maturity. It’s important that you make these decisions early so that your wishes are fulfilled. Watch the video now to learn more.
