Do you have a Will or does your Will need updating? Planning for your family’s future after you’re gone is a really important legal task. Without a legally valid Will that achieves the goal of benefiting the people you wish to benefit may mean that you die intestate.
If you take the time now to make an effective legally binding Will and Testament you can save your family not only stress but money in what will undoubtedly be a difficult time for them. If you do not make a Will providing for the people you wish to benefit from your estate then the law will deem that you have died intestate. The laws of intestacy will then dictate where your estate will go. This may result in your estate being distributed in a manner which is not what you would have wanted.
Ian Charman and Associates’ Will and Estate Planning lawyers can help:
- Advise you in regard to estate and Probate laws
- Write a Will that maximises the inheritance for your family
- Set up family and testamentary trusts
- Advise you in regard to choosing executors and guardians
- Safely store your Will and other important legal documents
At the same time as considering your Will we strongly recommend that you also put in place plans for any future incapacity through Power of Attorney and Guardianship documents. This will ensure that if you somehow become unable to make decisions about your finances, your medical treatment or living arrangements then the person or persons who you trust to make these decisions can do so unhindered.
