Why do I need a will?

With no will in place loved ones may face the pressures of legal fees and financial difficulties at the time they are mourning. A will can protect your family from a lot of worry by protecting your assets. What are the repercussions of not having a will? It’s not easy to think about the future and what could happen without a will. Assets may be taken away by the state or frozen in lieu of court judgements, and also, if a surviving partner remarries, then it is very possible that your children don’t get the inheritance that you would have liked them to have. Most people assume that the spouse inherits everything when there is no will drawn up. The actual inheritance process can be fraught with difficulties. Disputes between relatives over a deceased person’s estate are surprisingly common.

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

At such an emotionally charged time these arguments can cause much heartache. Where there is no will, distribution of your assets will be according to legal guidance, and this may not be exactly what you want. If you’re married with children, your spouse may not automatically inherit everything you own. Your spouse may benefit, but assets may also be distributed amongst your children. The law won’t necessarily recognise your partner an inheritor if you are not married. Writing a will in Barnsole can protect your assets from just about any eventuality.

Keeping your will 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. After writing it, you need to make sure you keep it in a safe place where your executors (but no one else) can find it when they need it. If your will cannot be found, or if it is damaged in any way, your executors will not be able to guarantee that your wishes will be instigated and the people that you want to benefit from your state will not be able to do so in the manner in which you have laid out. We will talk to you and find out about your storage situation and advise whether you should use a third-party solicitor, your own will storage service or perhaps lodge your will with the probate service.
