Why is the will necessary?
If you haven’t got a will then your family and other loved ones could face escalating legal fees, financial problems and other pressures even while they are still mourning. A will makes it clear what should happen with your assets and can therefore significantly reduce the worry and anxiety that your family will suffer. What happens if I don’t have a will? It’s not easy to think about the future and what could happen without a will. Assets can be frozen or lost to the state, and children can be disinherited if the surviving partner remarries. Many people believe that in the absence of a will, the surviving partner or spouse automatically inherits the deceased’s estate. The process isn’t always as easy as you may think. Disputes between relatives over a deceased person’s estate are surprisingly common.

What Happens if I Don't Have a Will in Bapchild
These arguments can cause a great deal of heartache, tension and force people apart when they should be together. You may not like how the law distributes your estate if you don’t have a will in place. If you’re married with children, your spouse may not automatically inherit everything you own. Rather, your state may be apportioned between your children and your spouse. If you aren’t married, then your partner may not be an automatic beneficiary in the eyes of the law. Writing a will in Bapchild can protect your assets from just about any eventuality.
Estate Planning Services in Bapchild
As well as offering high-quality will writing, Brighton Wills and Family Trust is happy to provide a full selection of estate planning services. We offer everything from probate forms and family trusts, to plans for prepaying funerals in order to make life easier for your family at that distressing time.
We can make the required provisions for the legality of Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA). If an accident or illness diminishes your capacity to make good judgements then you will need a trusted person to make decisions for you, and it’s easier if you have LPA in place already.
How will your will be stored? Being able to safely store and easily locate your will could mean the difference to making a legally valid will that can be accessed and used right away, or dying “intestate” meaning that there was no will or that no will could be found. 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. The people that you want to inherit your money and possessions might not be able to do so if your will is damaged or if it can’t be found by your executors after you have died. We will take a look at your requirements and give you advice as to whether you should use our will storage service, whether you should use the probate service, or whether you should give your Will to a third-party solicitor.
