As expert Will writing solicitors, we can help you protect the things you’ve worked hard for. Whether your estate is simple or complex, we can make the process of making a Will cost-effective and straightforward.
It’s human nature to put things off, but there are certain times when you’ll find it’s vital to make or update your Will. So we’re here to help, no matter what the situation demands.
- Marriage, civil partnership or divorce
If you’re just about to tie the knot, you’ll want to make sure your assets go to your loved one. Similarly, if a relationship comes to an end, you’ll be keen to settle matters while avoiding lengthy and costly court disputes. We’ll work closely with you to develop a strategy that’s fair for you and your family, protecting your financial security – and your well-being.
- Moving in with your partner
When you’re starting a new relationship, the last thing you want to think about is that relationship breaking down. But the fact is, if you’re living together, neither of you is protected by the law. The ideal solution is a cohabitation agreement. As Will writing solicitors, we can also help with pre-nuptial agreements to safeguard your future interests should a relationship fail.
- Protecting your wealth
You want to make sure that your wealth and assets are protected for future generations following your death. When you’re making a Will, you can also maximise the value of your hard won assets through effective estate planning. We could help you achieve significant tax savings to help you manage your wealth now and in the future.
- Other milestones
There are, of course, other times when you may want to consider writing a Will and getting your affairs in order. From buying a house, to the birth of your children – a life-changing event such as this can make having a Will a necessity. Changes in the law and tax legislation may also mean that it’s important to make or update a Will.
If your Will is straightforward, we’ll recommend our fixed fee Will, a simple and cost-effective way to plan ahead. However if you already have a Will in place, we can also help you update it if your circumstances change.
