Why do I need to make 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? Few people consider what could happen in the months and years that follow. 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. The majority of people believe that the spouse or partner will inherit the estate automatically when the deceased did not have a will in place. The actual inheritance process can be fraught with difficulties. There are often disputes over an estate between relatives.

What Happens if I Don't Have a Will in Graffham
The disagreements and arguments that take place can break people’s hearts when emotions are so charged. Without a will, your assets will be divided according to the law, which may not meet your wishes. Even if you are married with children, your spouse won’t necessarily automatically be the beneficiary of all that you own. Instead, your assets may be divided between your spouse and your children. As a civil partner, your partner may not inherit anything. A written will in Graffham is a vital step toward protecting against any eventuality.
Estate Planning Services in Graffham
Alongside our professional will-writing services, at Brighton Wills and Family Trusts we are experts in providing a wide range of estate planning services. We offer everything from probate forms and family trusts, to plans for prepaying funerals in order to make life easier for your family at that distressing time.
We can provide you with a service enabling you to put in place Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA). If an accident or illness diminishes your capacity to make good judgements then you will need a trusted person to make decisions for you, and it’s easier if you have LPA in place already.
Keeping your will safe 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. 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 assess your requirements and advise whether lodging your will with the probate service, a third party sister or if your own will storage service is the best option.
