You're wondering if a will is enough for you? Generally speaking our advice to clients is that no, a will is not enough.
A will is not going to accomplish what you want it to accomplish. A will is a set of instructions to a court about things that are going to go through the court process. They are really easy techniques that you can use to stay out of court.
Going to court is time consuming and bothersome, however doable. It is not the worst thing that can happen, but we can avoid it and if we can, why wouldn't we? If you are going to rely on just a will, then you have to be prepared to go through court. A lot of times, people who are relying just on a will have actually done other things like beneficiary designations or joint ownership that take things out of court already. It's already not going to be dealt with when dealing with the will. Generally speaking, if you think that having just a will by itself is a complete strategy, usually it's not.
