The Virginia State Bar provides some good advice to those wanting to know whether they need to have a Last Will and Testament. Here is a link to their informative article that can answer many common questions and provide you with the information that you will need if you decide to meet with an attorney about preparing your Will: http://www.vsb.org/site/publications/wills-in-virginia/.
You will find that it does not matter the size of your “estate.” There are good arguments for having a Will in place, especially if you have minor children or are facing a serious illness.
But it is just as important to have a Will in place even if you are not faced with these situations. These documents can give you peace of mind in knowing that you have put your affairs in order and that your wishes will be carried out.
