With a Will:

1.You choose your legal representative, not a judge;
2.You choose your intended guardian for your children;
3.You decide who receives an inheritance, what they receive, and when (or if) they get it;
4.You can provide for children of a previous marriage, elderly parents, or disabled family members; and
5.You  can save your loved ones from needless expenses and additional time needed to settle your legal matters.

Without a Will:

State law takes over and directs a result you may not like.
