A will is a legally binding document that details how you want your assets and belongings to be distributed after you die.
You don’t have to make a will since the law provides guidelines for distributing the assets of people who die without a will, but it is highly recommended that you do to give yourself the peace of mind that comes with control over ones own life especially if you are married, in a de facto relationship, have dependents or have significant assets.
