PREPARING YOUR WILL
Whether you are 25 or 85 years old, your Will is one of the most important legal tools you have. It is a legally binding document that stipulates how your assets should be distributed in the event of your death. The Will may also state directions as to who will care for your minor children upon your death, or how you wish your body to be disposed of.
The preparation of a Will is very important, and we will draft a Will to represent your wishes, from basic Wills to very complex Wills. Wills should be revised from time to time, particularly when significant changes occur in the family, whether personally (for example birth, death, illness, separation, divorce, remarriage) or in the commercial sense.
A Will should be made in contemplation of your marriage, divorce or re-marriage. Unless specifically provided for in the Will, marriage will automatically revoke any existing Will and, depending on the terms of your Will, divorce may achieve a similar result.
Dying without a Will leaves a great deal of uncertainty, as well as an unnecessary burden and stress on your loved ones. Putting a Will in place streamlines the process following your death and allows your family to ensure that your wishes are put in place.
At Uther Webster & Evans we can make the process easy for you. We sit down with you and discuss in detail your assets and how best they should be allocated, taking into consideration your personal family situation and other relevant circumstances.
