The Importance of Making A Will

The Importance of Making A Will | Middletons Solicitors | Andover Solicitors

Making a Will is one the easiest and best things you can do to protect the interests of the people you care about.

It’s also the only way of ensuring that your wealth is passed on in the way you want.

Unfortunately, many people never get round to making a Will, which means they are said to have died intestate.

If that is the case then their wishes will not be known and their estate will be divided in a way laid down by law. It means their money may not go to the people they would have chosen themselves.

If there is no Will, children, grandchildren and even surviving spouses may have to take legal action to receive the inheritance to which they believe they are entitled. Every week in the courts there are cases involving families who are in dispute because someone dear to them failed to make a Will.

If you already have a Will then it is a good idea to make sure that it is up to date. If it was made several years ago it may no longer reflect your current circumstances, especially if you have divorced and remarried.

Many people do not like the thought of making a Will and the associations that go with it but it’s the only way of ensuring that your estate is passed on according to your wishes.

A solicitor can make the process quick and easy while ensuring that all the paperwork is carried out properly in accordance with the law.
