The loss of a beloved family member can be difficult for a Michigan resident. As they work through their emotions and manage the decedent's end-of-life plans, they may begin to think about what will happen to the decedent's possessions and property. When a person dies, the things that they own become part of their end-of-life estate and that estate must be managed and distributed.
For some, thinking about the future comes natural to them. They have certain hopes and desires, and they want to takes steps to ensure that these fall into place and are protected. In contrast, some individuals in Michigan and elsewhere do not like thinking too far into the future, especially if it means thinking about their demise. Because death is a part of life, it is often something one needs to consider, even at a young age. This is why drafting a will can be a very important step to take, as it can memorialize one's wishes in writing when it comes to their property and assets and what will happen to them after their death.
