They all had peace mind of by knowing that they had the will in place that he wanted to have.

The most negative consequences are, if you are in a marriage where you are married to a person that is not the parent of your children. You will want to make sure the spouse is taken care of as well as the children; if you do not have a will in that situation you are asking for trouble.

If you have a special request, like you have that ring, or that piece of art, or that piece of furniture, that’s been in your family for a long time, and you want a particular person to have it, you will need to re-write your will.
