Your Last Will and Testament

A Last Will and Testament is not something most of us like to dwell upon and drafting a will – or even updating it – is something we tend to put off for some other time. We’re human too, and we can relate – which is why our approach to dealing with what can feel like such weighty matters is a down-to-earth and practical one. We’ll listen with empathy and sensitivity and ensure that you are guided by expert advice so that once we draft your Will, you have peace of mind in knowing that you have a sound legal document that will ensure your wishes are carried out.

Some people try to draft their Will on their own, without understanding the complexities and legal requirements regarding its validity or choose to go about getting a cheap and easy option at a stationery shop. When you have worked for as long and as hard as you have, however, it is worth ensuring that the legal solutions match your standards. It makes far more sense to engage our services so that we can provide you with accurate, to-the-point advice and assistance. We’ll help you set up your Will so that it’s legally compliant, there are no grey areas, and your exact wishes are fulfilled.

Contact us today and let’s attend to your Will and put your mind at ease.

When Should You Update Your Will or Have a Will Drafted?

As the saying goes, ‘there’s no time like the present’, but there are certain circumstances when it is considered especially prudent. These include:

  • Being recently married or moving in with your partner
  • Wanting to appoint a guardian for your minor children
  • Your children reaching adulthood and financial independence, thus no longer in need of the provisions you put in place when they were minors
  • Wanting to set up a trust fund for your children
  • Having beloved pets that you want to see cared for rather than being put down
  • Being separated or recently divorced
