By Laura Strachan, Esq. on August 10, 2011 6:56 AM

Most Americans don't have a will. Do you? Although the number of individuals without a will is highest among young people, the fact that 55% of Americans die without anything dictating the manner in which their possessions will be distributed is completely unnecessary.

The sad reality of the situation is that many people lack even a basic will, leaving their loved ones in a difficult situation and their belongings being distributed according to the law, not their wishes. That does not have to be the case, especially when looking at all the great content has on the subject.

FindLaw's estate planning content includes: basic information about wills and other estate planning tools, frequently asked questions, probate and estate tax information, do-it-yourself forms and links to a local attorney that can help you devise the best plan for your situation.

FindLaw also keeps up with the latest news on wills --writing about important trends and topics on FindLaw's Law & Daily Life and our hyperlocal blogs.

Should you have a will? Anyone who has specific concerns or plans as to how they would like their estate distributed in the event of their death should consult with an attorney about whether a will is appropriate.

Wills are unique to the person, and FindLaw's estate planning content covers the range of options for our users to find the plan that fits them best. Check it out today!
