Taking the time to make an effective legally binding Will and Testament can save your family not only stress, but money in what will undoubtedly be a difficult time for them.
There are many things to consider in making a Will, including who will be your executors, who will be beneficiaries of your estate and what effect will their inheritance have on their personal circumstances. Further, you should consider the impact of any major events such as marriage, divorce, property or business purchase or sale, death of a beneficiary or if your assets change significantly.
When major personal events occur, you should take the time to review your will to ensure it is still effective in reflecting your wishes.
At Bradley Lawyers, we know the potential pitfalls of an inadequate Will, and we will take the time to ask you all the right questions to make sure that you have considered every possibility. We can advise you as to whether you would be best with a Will or a Testamentary Trust. We can design your Will to help protect your family from expensive, time consuming estate litigation, and we can safely store your Will in our secure storage.
At the same time as considering your Will we strongly recommend that you also put in place plans for any future incapacity through Power of Attorney and Guardianship documents. This will ensure that if you somehow become unable to make decisions about your finances, your medical treatment or living arrangements then the person or persons you trust to make these decisions can do so unimpeded.
