You Really Should Have a Will
A will is an instrument by which a person distributes property after his or her death. If you do not have a will, then the government takes over, and your assets are divided according to the Rules of Intestacy. In Pennsylvania, that rule does not recognize unmarried relationships or domestic partners, and it does not necessarily give all of your assets to your spouse. Make sure you have a will. David G.
