Making a Will is one of the most important things you can do during your lifetime.
There is a misconception that Wills are a document purely for older people who have wealth, this misconception is unequivocally incorrect.
A Will is a legal document outlining your wishes in relation to who you choose to benefit from your property, money, belongings, and even care for your children!
By law, if you (and your partner where applicable) are involved in an accident and pass away, without clearly outlining who is to act as the Guardian for your children under the age of 18, they would pass to the Social Services.
Where Guardians have not been appointed in a Will, relatives can apply to regain full custody, but applying for GUARDIANSHIP is not an automatic procedure.
A Will can be written to help ease any concerns over financial provision. Trusts may be written into your Will so that regular payments can be made to individuals.
Writing a Will, laying out exactly what you want to happen and, how much you wish to leave to whom can alleviate family feuds and potential legal fees.
Many people have extended and diverse family situations with step children/parents for whom they wish to make provision for or exclude. In order for your wishes to be carried out they must be written carefully and precisely in your Will to ensure that they can’t be successfully challenged.
A professionally drafted Will ensures that your Will will be accepted by the Probate Registry, rather than being rejected as is the case with many DIY and poorly drafted Wills.
You may make a Will at any age over the age of 18 providing you have the mental capacity to do so.
The common age for consideration of preparing a Will is generally over 50; however, as times have changed there are a greater number of individuals and couples paying off mortgages, clearing outstanding debt, having children and generating wealth.
Another reason for younger generations becoming more interested in making a Will is investment planning, inheritance and mortgages.
Some use various TRUSTS within a Will as a tax-efficient way to safeguard their financial assets. Others think beyond their Will and consider FUNERAL PLANNING to help ease the financial burden on family members, to pre pay their funeral at a fixed price and to ensure that they have the funeral that they wish.
