A Will is the ONLY legal place to dictate what happens when you die and has a huge impact on loved ones left behind.
If you died without an up to date Will in place:-
- the authorities would decide where your children go
- assets might not go where you would want them to (especially if you are not married) – the family having just lost a parent/spouse and an income source, would also suffer delayed access to assets
It could be a very long drawn out process – the last thing your loved ones would want when they’re already grieving.
