Will Writing Service
Have you left your wishes by way of making a Will?
Below are some of the reasons why it is important not to die intestate (without a Will).
WHAT IF I HAVEN'T APPPOINTED A GUARDIAN?
The Court of Protection will decide what happens to your children under the age of 18. This may not necessarily be who you would have chosen yourself.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO MY ASSETS AND ESTATE IF THERE IS NO WILL?
It is wrongly assumed that your nearest and dearest will automatically receive these assets. It can be a long and very complicated process to distribute these and not always to those that you would choose. This process could take many years and can cause rifts between families, especially where one party remembers being "promised" a particular heirloom.
MY FAMILY WILL GRIEVE, CAN THEY GRIEVE PEACEFULLY?
Without a Will, this can be a particularly stressful time for families having to locate a lifetime of documentation and arrange for payments to be made once probate has been granted. Again, this process could take years. Wouldn't you rather they grieve peacefully and celebrate your life?
WHO WILL KNOW MY BURIAL WISHES?
Without a Will, nobody will formally know your wishes. Funeral arrangements and possibly organ donations can be terribly difficult and painful for your family to decide what your wishes might be.

Lasting Power of Attorney
WHAT IS IT?
If you lose the ability, through illness or mental health, to make decisions for yourself, a Lasting Power of Attorney is where you appoint someone (usually your spouse/partner) to make the decisions for you. They will be able to control your finances by dealing with your bank accounts and investments, pay bills and living costs. A Lasting Power of Attorney is as equally important as a Will because it is a document, used if necessary, when you are alive but incapable of making your own decisions.
Loss of capacity leads to bank accounts and investments being frozen – even those in joint names with your spouse/partner. If you do not have a lasting Power of Attorney more families will battle with the Court of Protection in order to access your estate.
Your family or spouse/partner will have to apply to the Court of Protection, this is an extremely long, expensive and very stressful process and in the meantime your living and other costs will need to be made.
