Wills may be amended any time and should be updated often in the event of marital changes or other major life shifts.

Obituary.us.org, a leader in obituary records on the Internet, shares the importance of a having a will in case of passing, especially as flu deaths go up in number across the U.S. A will will let the deceased leave assets to whom they wish rather than have the state courts decide who the heirs will be.
Intestacy laws vary from state to state, but in general if a person dies an estate will be split up between the spouse and children. Or if a person is single the state will decide among blood relatives who gets the assets.
Writing a will is important for those with young children in regards to transferring guardianship. Wills may be amended any time and should be updated often in the event of marital changes or other major life shifts.
Having a living trust is also another option that allows a person to put conditions on how assets are distributed after death. Most trusts deal with specific things in an estate like life insurance or property.
Either way, Obituary.us.org recommends all living persons have some sort of asset or estate defined in case of death during this year's epidemic flu season. It's important to leave loved ones with the money or property they deserve when passing.
