There are very few instances in which a person doesn’t need a last will and testament. Even if you have no family, what would you want to happen to your assets? If you have a pet, who will care for it? Without a will, the estate of the deceased is usually put on hold until a judge can decide who will get what. This process is often lengthy and costly, eating up any estate that you could have donated to go towards court fees.
