Don't have a will? The Tennessee intestacy statutes direct how your property is distributed to family members in the event of your death. You need a will if you desire to direct where your property goes after your departure.

There are four main types of powers of attorney (1) Limited, (2) General, (3) Durable, and (4) Springing.
