Why is the will necessary?

Passing without a will in place could leave your loved ones facing financial hardship, unbearable pressure and mounting legal fees at a time of mourning A will can protect your family from a lot of worry by protecting your assets. What happens if I don’t have a will? Not many people actually think about what could happen in the years following your passing. Property, cash, investments and other assets may be frozen or the state may claim some or a portion of them, and if a partner remarries then your children may not get the inheritance that you want them to have. Most people assume that the spouse inherits everything when there is no will drawn up. The process isn’t always as easy as you may think. It is surprising how common disputes are when relatives begin to fight over a deceased’s estate.

What Happens if I Don't Have a Will in High-Halden

The arguments and disagreements that follow can be heart-breaking at such a difficult time. Where there is no will, distribution of your assets will be according to legal guidance, and this may not be exactly what you want. As someone married and with children, it is not necessarily the case that your spouse will automatically inherit your estate. 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. Having a will in High-Halden is crucial to protect against anything you don’t want happening to your estate.

Storing your will 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. Once you have your will, you need it stored safely where people can’t randomly access it, but where your executors will be able to find it in order to execute your decisions. 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.
