Why Should I Make 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. A will helps protect your assets and relieves the debilitating worry your family could face.
Disputes between relatives over a deceased person’s estate are surprisingly common. The arguments and disagreements that follow can be heartbreaking at such a difficult time.
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.
Few people consider what could happen in the months and years that follow: assets can be frozen or lost to the state, and children can be disinherited if the surviving partner remarries.
A written will is a vital step towards protecting against any eventuality.
