When it comes to a will, these are the important things to cover:
Marital status: If you’re married, you can name your spouse as a beneficiary or create a mirror will for them.
Number of children: If you have kids under 18, you need a will so you can name legal guardians.
Existing will: If you have a will, you might need to update it based on big life events like moving states, having a baby, or changing your marital status. (And if you create your will online, it’s easy to update.)
Estate size: If you have a complex situation, like you’re worth a million bucks (not just lookin’ like a million bucks), you might need to meet with an estate attorney in person.
