What are the reasons for needing a will?

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 Family worry and anxiety can be reduced by making it clear what should happen to your assets through the will. Without a will what is likely to happen? Very few people sit down to think about what could happen in the future. 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 through which this happens is not always easy though. A deceased person’s estate is often the source of a lot of fighting and resentment when it comes to families distributing assets and wealth.

What Happens if I Don't Have a Will in Palm-Bay

The arguments and disagreements that follow can be heart-breaking at such a difficult time. Assets will be distributed according to the law when there is no will in place, and this may not be how you want things to proceed. Even if you are married with children, your spouse won’t necessarily automatically be the beneficiary of all that you own. Instead, your children and your spouse may have the assets distributed between them. If you aren’t married, then your partner may not be an automatic beneficiary in the eyes of the law. Having a will in Palm-Bay that is written down is a crucial stepping stone to ensuring that your estate is protected.

Storing your will The safe storage and ease of access of your will is crucial in order to ensure that you don’t die “intestate”, without a valid will being 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. 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. It might be a good idea to store your will with the probate service, a separate solicitor or with our own storage service for wills – we can advise you on the best option.
