At this point, you may wonder – Why Make A Will?

  1. A Will is an efficient way to inform your loved ones about how your assets are to be distributed after your death. Or else, in accordance with the intestacy rules, your estate would go to people you never would have intended to provide for.
  2. A Will can help to avoid family disputes after your death.
  3. In the case of co-habiting couples, a Will is the perfect way to ensure that your partner is not left empty-handed. According to present laws, your partner might not receive anything without a Will.
  4. Your Will enables you to provide a fair share of your assets to your spouse or civil
    partner.
  5. Your Will also ensures that you can choose the people you feel would be apt to act as guardians for any of your children under the age of 18.
  6. It is also the best way to include gifts or bequests to the special people in your life.
