Make A Will 

For more information on the individual Will services we provide, click on the choices below:

What is a Will:


A will is your opportunity to set out your wishes legally.  It is a legal document that sets out the beneficiaries of your assets, who will take care of your children, how your estate will be shared and who will be responsible for executing the wishes laid out in your will.


It is a wonderful way for you to remember all your relatives and loved ones. Ensuring all those sentimental items are given to those people who mattered most to you during your lifetime. Your wealth accumulated during your life can be shared amongst all your family members exactly how you want.


A will also allow you to exclude those people you do not want to benefit from your accumulated wealth which can also be just as important for some people.  This could be the case for married couples who have informally separated.

If you do not have a Will:


You do not have a say in how your assets are distributed and your family and loved ones also have no say. The law will decide, this means the rules of intestacy will apply and married, civil partners and relatives can only inherit.


We have had to console and consult with family members who are grieving and having the added burden of trying to navigate what the wishes of their departed loved one would have been with other family members.  Aside from the distribution of assets which can cause contention, there is consideration around funeral wishes, whether a cremation or burial is desirable which has caused major disputes between family members.


You can feel helpless because you really do not have a say, the law will decide.  If you have been cohabiting and you considered yourself as a common-law partner under the rules of intestacy you cannot inherit. What would this mean for you if the home you live in was in your partner’s name when they departed?
