will and probate services
Write the right type of will
Why do I need a Will?
Do you have children under 18?
Did you know if you don't appoint a guardian for your children, the courts and social services will have to?
Are you married?
Most Married Couples mistakenly assume that everything they have will automatically go to their other half if one of them dies. Without a Will, other members of the family could make a legitimate claim on your estate
Do you have children from a previous relationship?
In the absence of both parents, assets will pass to the children (or family) of whoever died second, leaving the other person's family with nothing. There's no such thing as simultaneous death in the eyes of the law. Read more about this here.
Are you and your partner unmarried?
Your partner has no legal entitlement to any part of your estate unless you write
a Will to include them.

Do you have assets in your name only?
Your assets will be frozen until any claims are processed and the administration of your estate is completed. This could take months or even years and cause huge distress and financial difficulties for those who rely on you. Nobody wants that do they?
