Will Writing Services
You don’t realise all the implications of getting a will done until you sit down and speak with a lawyer. For example, if you are in a relationship with someone and you don’t have kids but they do, they will be entitled to part of his estate. That may seem perfectly reasonable, but a lot of people would feel it was unfair if they went into the relationship and invested their own money.
The question may be if you are getting a will writing service done, what happens to your estate, does it all go to your partner. If the answer is yes, is that fair? He would be more beneficial than you if you were to die. So, you see it is not clean cut and needs legal advice so you can protect your assets and estate while you are here, and if you are unfortunate enough to pass over.
Complexities of Will Writing
Families can get into a terrible mess when someone dies, we have seen people act like savages raking through possessions to see what they can take. It can all get greedy and arguments can start very easily. Will writing is not a difficult task for your lawyer, but it needs to be very clear about your wishes so that it cannot be contested by any family member.
Will writing is something we do regularly for our clients, we meet with each client personally to take instruction and go through their assets and liabilities. We usually get clients referring other people to us because of our excellent customer service.
Please let us know if you have a will drawn up elsewhere as we like to check we have copies of everything that is legally binding. If you are a new client, please look through all the legal services we offer.
