Lawson-West's Guide to Making a Will
From deciding funeral wishes, choosing an Executor, to deciding how to split your estate between your beneficiaries, making a Will is likely to be one of the most important documents that you make.
A Will is an important legal document that should be updated at strategic times throughout your life; when you inherit assets, have children of your own, marry, re-marry, adopt, divorce, retire and after the bereavement of a loved-one.
By making a Will, you can:
• ensure that your loved ones are reasonably cared for
• ensure that your children inherit at the right age (intestacy
rules state 18 which you may consider to be too young)
• ensure that your friends and family are provided for
• ensure that your assets and belongings go to the right people
