Everyone should have a Will, yet plenty of Americans have excuses for why they don’t have one. Some think it’s too expensive, some worry that they don’t have a lawyer to help them, and a full 55% say they just plain haven’t gotten around to it yet. All of that’s understandable, of course: most people worry that dealing with lawyers and creating legal documents is going to be time-consuming, stressful, and expensive.
