What are the reasons for needing a will?

Passing away without having drawn up a will can mean that the people you love face massive pressures, financial difficulties and legal fees during the mourning process. Family worry and anxiety can be reduced by making it clear what should happen to your assets through the will. What can happen if I don’t make a will? Few people consider what could happen in the months and years that follow. Assets can be frozen or lost to the state, and children can be disinherited if the surviving partner remarries. Most people assume that the spouse inherits everything when there is no will drawn up. However, the inheritance process is not always very satisfactory. There are often disputes over an estate between relatives.

What Happens if I Don't Have a Will in Wivelsfield

The arguments and disagreements that follow can be heart-breaking at such a difficult time. Without a will, your assets will be divided according to the law, which may not meet your wishes. As someone married and with children, it is not necessarily the case that your spouse will automatically inherit your estate. Instead, your assets may be divided between your spouse and your children. If you aren’t married to your partner, then they may not get an inheritance from you. Having a will in Wivelsfield is crucial to protect against anything you don’t want happening to your estate.

Estate Planning Services in Wivelsfield

Estate Planning Services in Wivelsfield

Brighton Wills and Family Trusts are well known for providing professional will-writing services, and also for our excellent range of estate planning services. Whether you need family trusts or probate forms, or want to prepay a funeral to take the strain off your family in the future, we can help.

Our professionals can sort out the legalities of Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) for you. You may wish to put an arrangement for an LPA in place in the event that you need a trusted person to make health, welfare and financial decisions if you have suffered loss of mental capacity due to either accident or illness.

How will your will be stored? It is crucial that your will is stored safely and is readily accessible so that you don’t die officially “intestate”, where no valid will was found to be used following your passing. Your executors need your will to be undamaged, and within easy access when the time comes, so you need to store it safely and somewhere where other people won’t be able to access it before the required time. Your will must be found by your executors and must not be damaged in order for them to guarantee that the people that you want to get your money, assets and property will get them distributed to them as you desire. We will assess your requirements and advise whether lodging your will with the probate service, a third party sister or if your own will storage service is the best option.
