Step-Money: Who Is Entitled to Your Assets?

with Ron Deal | June 11, 2020

It's when a court has to decide after you die who is entitled to your assets. There's a body of laws that take over when you don't have a will and only 45% of Americans have a will. Do you want family members fighting over your stuff? Without a will you might be setting them up for just that sort of heartache. And for stepfamilies, why let the court give your spouse or their children things you wanted to give to your children? Instead, why not bless your family with your will?

Ron: Do you know what intestacy is?

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: No, it’s not a stomach virus. It’s when a court has to decide after you die who is entitled to your assets. You see, there’s a whole body of laws that take over when you don’t have a will and only 45 percent of Americans have a will.

Think about it. Do you want family members fighting over your stuff? I don’t think so. But without a will you might just be setting them up for just that sort of heartache. Why put people you love in that situation? And for stepfamilies, why let the court give your spouse or their children things you wanted to give to your children? Instead, why not bless your family with your will? For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
