Why is the will necessary?

Passing away without having drawn up a will can mean that the people you love face massive pressures, financial difficulties and legal fees during the mourning process. By protecting your assets and making it clear what happens to them, a will can reduce the anxiety that your family experiences. 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. However, the way this happens does not suit everyone. 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 Old-Woking

At such an emotionally charged time these arguments can cause much heartache. When there is no will in place, your assets will be distributed according to the law, which may not be in line with what you want. As someone married with children, you would expect your spouse to inherit everything, but this is not necessarily automatically the case. Your assets may be distributed around your spouse and children. If you are not married, your partner may not get any of your assets. Writing a will in Old-Woking can protect your assets from just about any eventuality.

Keeping your will safe 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 is damaged or if your executors can’t find it after your death, then your wishes might not be followed and the people that you want to inherit your possessions and money might not do so. 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.
