Simply leaving it to friends and family members to ‘do the right thing’ can lead to confusion and dispute, which can leave money, real estate and belongings held up in limbo through messy legal proceedings. It may be much more affordable and efficient than you anticipate to have a lawyer explain your rights and options, and prepare official documentation which meets your needs and – importantly – is enforceable.
You should certainly consider with one of our Lawyers, whether a Will needs to be made or to be amended to express accurately what you wish to provide. Remember that a Will is revoked by a marriage, but not by a separation and it may be important to make changes to provide as you would wish, particularly if you have children.
