Why is the will necessary?

If you were to pass without a will it could cause financial difficulties, the responsibility for legal fees and many other pressures that fall to your loved ones at the time of mourning. A will helps protect your assets and relieves the debilitating worry your family could face. What can happen if I don’t make a will? It is not always easy to think about what can happen in the future. Assets can be lost to the state if frozen, and if a surviving partner remarries then children can even be disinherited. 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 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 Petworth

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. 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 to your partner, then they may not get an inheritance from you. A written will in Petworth is a vital step toward protecting against any eventuality.

Keeping 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. 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. 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.
