The one group legal services benefit most commonly used is drafting a will. These final instructions on how to deal with the estate have helped many families find closure when death comes knocking. It is unfortunate but many people put off having a will composed. Some even imagine that events will take care of themselves. That is a fantasy. A group legal plan that has an option for drawing up a last will is providing the kind of protection children need.

Future Security Could Be Put at Risk

Passing away without a will leaves everything in a condition of intestate. This will require the matter being brought before probate court for determination. An administrator is appointed and that person reports directly to the court. The needs of the survivors may or may not be considered. There is where the problem arises.

The surviving children might not be toddlers. They may in fact be teenagers who are about ready to start looking for colleges. Money needed for tuition can be bottled up for months as a probate court decides how the estate is going to be distributed. This can result in sons and daughters being forced to take out large college loans, or delay going to college for a couple of years. It can cause a very serious disruption.

Drafting a Will Is Necessary, but Not Necessarily Difficult

What is amazing about the procrastination is that drafting a will is not that difficult at all. A group legal plan with competent lawyers can offer service that is very simple. The lawyer can draft the needed document and do all that is necessary to make it legal and binding. This allows for the wishes of the deceased to be followed to the letter, and relieves the beneficiaries of a lot of unnecessary red tape. Group legal services such as this are a great help to any family with children in it. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services has drafting a will as one of the benefit options for a Countrywide group legal plan.
