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 makes it clear what should happen with your assets and can therefore significantly reduce the worry and anxiety that your family will suffer. If I don’t draw up a will what can happen? 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 Rusthall

As someone married with children, you would expect your spouse to inherit everything, but this is not necessarily automatically the case. Rather, your state may be apportioned between your children and your spouse. If you aren’t married to your partner, then they may not get an inheritance from you.

Storing your will Having your will stored safely and it being easily to locate could be the difference between officially dying “intestate”, and seeming to not have a valid will in place, and immediately having a valid, legally binding will available. When your will has been written, you need to keep it in a place that is safe and where your executors will be able to find it when the time comes. 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. 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.
